NBA trade rumors: Knicks want second-round pick in exchange for guard Trey Burke

Trey Burke

Burke is averaging 11.6 points and 2.9 assists in 20.3 minutes per game this season.

The Knicks are looking to move Trey Burke.

New York will explore dealing the 26-year-old point guard ahead of the Feb. 7 deadline, according to a report from The New York Post. The team is hoping to receive a second-round pick in exchange for Burke, the report says.

Burke said being traded isn’t something he’s “thinking about a lot.”

“Everyone I’ve spoken to knows I want to be a New York Knick,” Burke told the Post. “But it’s the nature of the business if it doesn’t work out. I’m not saying it won’t work out here, but I think the last couple of weeks it has been difficult putting things in perspective. Am I going to be here in the long-term picture? But I snap out of it because it’s out of my control.”

Burke is averaging 11.6 points and 2.9 assists in 20.3 minutes per game this season. He’s shooting 41 percent from the field and 35.1 percent from 3-point range.

The Knicks have been one of the worst teams in the NBA this season and will enter their matchup against the Heat on Sunday with a 10-37 record.

New York is reportedly also looking to move guards Tim Hardaway Jr. and Courtney Lee.
