Knicks trade rumors: Jermaine O'Neal, Timofey Mozgov options for Knicks team likely to stay quiet

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

The Knicks could make a move for center depth as they hit the stretch run, with Timofey Mozgov and Jermaine O'Neal tossed around as potential options.

The New York Knicks aren't the likeliest team to make a move before the deadline, but with about 24 hours to go, the Knicks have a few options.

Seth Rosenthal of Posting and Toasting did a nice job of breaking down what was floating around Tuesday night, and here's an updated list.

- Former Knicks center Timofey Mozgov -- most famous for getting dunked on by Blake Griffin, but also a key inclusion in the Carmelo Anthony trade -- is up for grabs, and Marc Berman of the New York Post reports Knicks are a suitor. The 7-foot-1 Mozgov still hasn't had a chance to play starter's minutes in the NBA, but he's still got size and has always been reasonably productive in his court time. He's behind Kosta Koufos and Javale McGee in the Nuggets rotation, so they wouldn't lose much getting rid of him, while the Knicks have been strapped for center depth with Marcus Camby and Rasheed Wallace hurt.. Then again, Mozgov is a free agent this summer, and if the Knicks are truly high on him, they could sign him then.

- The Suns are looking to deal Jermaine O'Neal, and the Knicks are supposedly one of the teams involved, per Chris Broussard. O'Neal would also provide center depth, and although he's far, far away from the player he once was, he's averaging 7.0 points per game this year.

- There had been talk of dealing Iman Shumpert to the Magic for J.J. Redick, but Berman also said that's no longer a possibility, and that he'll stick with the Knicks. Mike Woodson said "I don't think so" when asked about a trade going down, which is exactly as non-committal as a coach is supposed to be.

- Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! says Donte Greene is also an option.

- The extreme long-shot from Alex Kennedy is Amar'e Stoudemire and Iman Shumpert for Josh Smith. Kennedy admitted it was unlikely, and from an outsider's perspective, it doesn't really make sense for either team.
