Knicks Have Expressed Interest In Luke Ridnour

Last night, we heard that the Knicks and Timberwolves have engaged in trade talks, though it wasn't clear which players were being discussed. Today, a report from Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld starts to fill in the blanks, as Kennedy tweets that the Knicks have expressed interest in Luke Ridnour.

From the Timberwolves' perspective, trade discussions involving Ridnour make sense, since the Wolves are said to be shopping the veteran point guard. The Knicks' interest is a little surprising though — as Chuck Myron of Hoops Rumors pointed out last night, New York seems fairly set at point guard, with Raymond Felton, Jason Kidd, and Pablo Prigioni all healthy. Presumably, if the Knicks were to acquire Ridnour, the club would either ship out one of their current options (likely Prigioni) in the deal or plan on playing Ridnour at the two.

Speculating on how Ridnour would fit on the Knicks' roster is probably premature, however, as Kennedy doesn't suggest the talks are serious. It's possible New York was just kicking the tires on Ridnour to get an idea of the T-Wolves' asking price.
