The New York Knicks are unlikely to make a deadline deal for the second straight season.

“They’re not even waiting on anything,’’ one person familiar with the Knicks’ thinking said. “It’s pretty safe to say they’re not making a deal.’’

The Knicks have expressed interest in Jermaine O’Neal and are monitoring Kenyon Martin, who is a free agent.

O'Neal could be a buyout candidate if the Phoenix Suns need an additional roster spot.
