A source told ESPNNewYork.com on Tuesday that the Knicks are exploring trade options involving Toney Douglas. ESPN NBA analyst Chris Broussard confirmed it with the website this morning.
Douglas, a 6-2 combo guard, was the Knicks' starting point guard at the beginning of the season after the team amnestied Chauncey Billups, but he's become a bench warmer since Jeremy Lin burst on to the scene. Since Feb. 8, Douglas has only played in one game for six minutes.
No specific names have surfaced as to who the Knicks may target for Douglas, but chances are they could go after another big-man defender and rebounder. Currently, starting center Tyson Chandler is playing through an injured left wrist and his backup, Jared Jeffries, is still out with a sore right knee, which he had drained the other day.
