Knicks trying to move up into lottery targeting Chris Duarte

Chad Ford: Hearing from several sources that the Knicks are aggressively trying to move up into the lottery. Oregon’s Chris Duarte is the target. Charlotte and Indiana the two teams most open to moving down. Just unclear what it will cost the Knicks. 19 & 21, I’m told, isn’t enough.
When I asked Wagner recently about the workout with the Warriors, he elected not to disclose that information but did say he would “fit in really well” alongside Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green in Steve Kerr’s system. “My versatility can help that team a lot,” Wagner said. “I think the way I defend multiple positions and also shoot the three well is what’s going to help me stay on the floor or get on the court. I can read the game well and play a free game — that’s what I would call it.”
With a little over 24 hours before the start of the 2021 NBA Draft, the Kings still are turning over every stone in their search for the perfect fit with the No. 9 overall pick. A league source confirmed to NBC Sports California that the Kings interviewed Australian point guard Josh Giddey in the buildup to the draft and even made a trip to Las Vegas to see him work out with the Australian national team.
