The New York Knicks were reluctant to deal Kevin Knox at the trade deadline, league sources told Ian Begley of SNY.

The Knicks, under previous president Steve Mills, had put together a deal they felt the Warriors would have liked for D’Angelo Russell. It is unclear whether the package included Knox.

Many in the Knicks organization view Knox as part of their young core moving forward, alongside Mitchell Robinson and RJ Barrett.

The 20-year-old is averaging 6.5 points and 2.8 rebounds this season.
