The Knicks are in search of backcourt help, as Toney Douglas is the only guard under contract for next season.

Players the Knicks are considering at No. 48 are 6-foot-2 Marquette combo guard Darius Johnson-Odom, Georgetown 6-7 shooting guard Hollis Thompson and 6-6 Tennesee Tech shooting guard Kevin Murphy.

Texas Tech small forward Khris Middleton also is in the mix, but scouts are concerned after a lackluster junior year plagued all season by ankle issues.
