The Knicks have gotten more aggressive in their pursuit of Pacers center Myles Turner, according to J. Michael of the Indianapolis Star.
Turner has been linked to several teams in recent weeks, icluding the Knicks, Hornets and Mavericks. Along with Turner, Pacers small forward T.J. Warren is also said to be drawing trade interest.
But Michael reported that a “seismic change” of the Pacers’ roster is probably not on the way ahead of next season.
The Knicks, on the other hand, are exploring multiple additions to the roster, though will likely only end up pulling off one or two.
Turner, 25, averaged 12.6 points, 6.5 rebounds and a career-high 3.4 blocks in 46 games this past season.
Warren had a strong finish to 2019-20, but had this past season cut short after suffering a toe injury. He has one year and $12.7 left on his contract, making him a even more attractive option for rival clubs.
NBA free agency begins Monday at 6 p.m.
