Sources: Celtics, Knicks talk Porzingis trade

The Knicks are talked about trading Kristaps Porzingis with the Celtics, Thunder, and Suns, but sources tell ESPN that New York GM Phil Jackson's demands for their young star are "ridiculous" and the teams are far from having a done deal.

Source familiar with the talks between Knicks and Celtics told ESPN that New York's demands for Kristaps Porzingis are "ridiculous." Also the source gives the sense that Boston will likely keep its No. 3 pick to draft a player and not trade down again.

The Celtics have offered the Knicks a deal for Kristaps Porzingis that includes their No. 3 pick, an additional lottery pick that they think they can acquire tonight and a player, executives familiar with Boston's offer told ESPN. Obviously, the trade would be contingent on Boston acquiring that pick, which would likely be ahead of the Knicks' No. 8 pick. It is unclear at this point if the Knicks have interest in the trade. Phil Jackson said the club is taking calls on trades for Porzingis.

Opposing executives believe Minnesota is considering using its No. 7 pick as part of a package to try to re-engage the Chicago Bulls on a trade for Jimmy Butler, ESPN has learned. The Cavs had previously tried to trade for Butler but were unsuccessful. Sources told ESPN's Marc Stein that Butler earlier this week expressed a desire to remain in Chicago and lead the Bulls back to prominence. The Vertical reported earlier this week that Minnesota had preliminary talks with Chicago about Butler.
