Without mentioning Goran Dragic by name, Knicks President Phil Jackson says the Knicks hope “to be in the conversation” for impending free agents like the Phoenix Suns point guard. “We want to be in the conversation,” Jackson, speaking generally, said Wednesday at the Knicks practice facility in Tarrytown, N.Y. “I don’t know how serious we can be about it but we’d like to be in the conversation so we’re interested.” The Knicks Blog

Still, Jackson anticipated being busy up until Thursday’s 3 p.m. trade deadline, looking both to add cap room and potentially players for the future. “We’re doing both,” he said. “If we get more cap room, great. If not, can we add a player that’s going to be a substantial addition to our team?” The Knicks Blog

Word from New York is that the Knicks are being aggressive in trying to shake loose a trade for players they covet in free agency, namely to get their Bird Rights and what looks to be a lower cap hold. Phoenix’s Goran Dragic has a cap hold of $11.25 million, which even if his contract is ultimately a max deal at four years and $80 million, the Knicks would preserve almost $4.25 million in usable space to sign other players and complete Dragic’s deal last and exceed the cap with his rights.

After informing the Phoenix Suns that Goran Dragic won't re-sign an extension this summer, agent Bill Duffy delivered the Phoenix Suns a list of preferred trade destinations that includes the Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks and Miami Heat, league sources told Yahoo Sports. The Indiana Pacers have maintained a consistent interest with Dragic, and their need for a point guard – and ability to be a contender with the return of Paul George – makes them a destination Dragic could possibly OK, league sources said.
