The Knicks are "likely willing to include three first-round picks" in exchange for Damian Lillard, according to Marc Berman of the New York Post.
The night Denver eliminated the Blazers, Dame quoted lyrics from rapper Nipsey Hussle in an Instagram post: “How long should I stay dedicated? How long til opportunity meets preparation?” Earlier this month, ESPN's Stephen A. Smith said that “six or seven” teams have called the Blazers to inquire about potentially trading for Lillard, and that the Knicks were one of those teams. In Tuesday's Post report, Berman writes, "the Knicks, desperate for a point guard, believe they have assets and cap space to make a trade for a star such as Lillard." This is obviously a situation we'll keep an eye on all summer. Jun 15 10:41 am (EST)
