The Knicks may be trying to trade up to get Texas center Mohamed Bamba, according to ESPN.
Members of the Knicks organization met in-person with Texas’ Mohamed Bamba in New York today, team sources told ESPN. The meeting is an indication that the Knicks are considering trading up from the No. 9 pick. Bamba is projected as the fifth pick in ESPN’s latest mock draft.
New York would likely have to trade up into the top 5 to get Bamba, making Memphis a possible trade partner. However, if they want to do that, the Grizzlies would want to throw in a suggestion of their own.
According to ESPN, Memphis is adamant about getting rid of Chandler Parsons’ contract. Any team wanting the No. 4 pick would likely have to take on Parsons in a deal.
Parsons has two years left on the four year, $94 million deal he signed with Memphis in 201He has played a grand total of 70 games in two seasons with the Grizzlies averaging 7.1 points.
