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.

Prigioni has one year left on his pact, but only $300,000 of his $1.7 million is guaranteed. “No, no, no,’’ Prigioni, who missed his second straight game with a hip injury on Friday, said when asked if he was intrigued about playing in a new American city. “I’m just focused here. “No reason to think about it, it’s directly out of our hands. I focus on the next practice, supporting the guys, keep moving on. Just focusing on the team and give my best. In the summer we will see. Now just focusing on our team.” New York Post

If he still is around after the trade deadline, as expected, Jackson could waive him to open a roster spot for a D-Leaguer or a player they gain from a trade exception. But somehow Stoudemire is still a fan favorite for the diligence and class he has shown in coming back from multiple knee surgeries. “I haven’t talked with Phil or [general manager] Steve Mills yet about the future,’’ Stoudemire said. “I’m sure we’ll talk soon about it. I don’t think something will be done this season. But the future is in their hands and my health. I want to make sure I stay healthy and maintain myself the rest of my career.’’ New York Post
