Derrick Rose was asked if he hopes nothing happens at the trade deadline. He's well aware that the Knicks are talking to Minnesota about a trade. "I just want to play. Like I said, it's not up to me," he said. "My job is to be a professional about it, no matter where I'm at. If they decide to do it, I'll go there. I feel like I'm prepared but we'll have to see."

The Clippers had recently shown interest in Knicks SG Courtney Lee but one team that had been in touch with the Knicks didn't get the impression that Lee would be moved. Another team in contact with NYK said the club is looking for a first-round pick - just like every other team - and had discussed packaging Kyle O'Quinn and Brandon Jennings together in a deal.

The Timberwolves and Knicks, by the way, remain in active discussions for a possible Derrick Rose deal, according to sources.

The Knicks, sources say, are pushing for an additional piece from Minnesota in the Rubio/DRose talks and that's been the holdup this week.

In talks with Minnesota on a potential Derrick Rose deal, the Knicks had been seeking multiple players or a player and a draft pick in return, sources said. Point guard Ricky Rubio is the obvious candidate because he and Rose could be traded in a one-for-one deal. The organization has also held Rubio in high regard for some time. It be interesting to see if Knicks pull back on their insistence for a multiple-player or player-and-a-pick return as the 3 pm deadline approaches.
