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

Al Iannazzone: Phil says not a lot of interest in Bargnani on trade market. Phil also said they may need Bargnani's scoring with no Melo and Amar'e. Twitter @Al_Iannazzone


Carmelo Anthony already ahead of Phil Jackson, but still far away from the all-time New York greats.
