The New York Knicks have identified P.J. Tucker of the Phoenix Suns as a potential trade target.
Tucker has earned a reputation as a strong defender over his career, something the Knicks need.
The Knicks have several attractive young players, such as Willy Hernangomez, Kyle O’Quinn and Mindaugas Kuzminskas. They also have draft picks, but Phil Jackson and the Knicks’ front office informed teams last season that they weren’t going to part with future first-round picks.
Tucker will be a free agent in the offseason.
