The New York Knicks have discussed acquiring one of the three first round picks owned by the Portland Trail Blazers.

Portland owns the 15th, 20th and 26th overall picks. According to a report earlier this week from Keith Smith, the Blazers have interest in using one of those picks to shed salary from their books.

Talks between New York and Portland are believed to be in the early stages, but one scenario discussed involved an additional player from Portland being sent in a trade.

The Knicks own the eighth overall pick.
