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.

Nets' and Wizards' trade of Bojan Bogdanovic and Chris McCullough for Andrew Nicholson, guard Marcus Thornton and 2017 protected first round draft pick officially goes through. Wizards add much-needed bench scoring and unload Nicholson's salary. Nets gain a first-round pick and veteran stretch scoring forward in Nicholson. "Bojan is a very good shooter and a talented overall scorer whose versatility gives us an added dimension as we gear up for the stretch run," said Washington president Ernie Grunfeld. "He is a proven starter that will provide us an added boost off the bench and allow us to be creative with our lineups."
