The New York Knicks are seeking the No. 3 overall pick in the 2017 draft, the Brooklyn Nets' pick in 2018 along with Jaylen Brown and Jae Crowder from the Boston Celtics in exchange for Kristaps Porzingis.
The Celtics, at this point, are unwilling to meet Phil Jackson's asking price. Danny Ainge is reportedly open to tweaking the deal to include just one of the two Brooklyn picks.
This version of the deal would not include the contract of Joakim Noah.
Jackson has regretted not acquiring Crowder since he wasn't included in the Knicks' deal with the Dallas Mavericks for Tyson Chandler.
Brown is also known to be close to Isiah Thomas.
Ian Begley of ESPN reports the Celtics are offering the No. 3 pick along with one player and an additional 2017 lottery pick they believe they can acquire in a separate trade tonight.
A source tells Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald, "(Phil Jackson) is just messing with things." The Celtics are "waiting for Jackson to come back to earth."
At the end of draft night per Adrian Wojnarowski, teams were wondering if Jackson was merely trying to send a message to Porzingis' camp with his public trade talks.
