In talks with Minnesota on a potential Derrick Rose deal, the Knicks had been seeking multiple players or a player and a draft pick in return, sources said. Point guard Ricky Rubio is the obvious candidate because he and Rose could be traded in a one-for-one deal. The organization has also held Rubio in high regard for some time. It be interesting to see if Knicks pull back on their insistence for a multiple-player or player-and-a-pick return as the 3 pm deadline approaches.
