Knicks reject Hawks' offer for No. 3 pick

Knicks reject Hawks' offer for No. 3 pick

Rumors swirl that the team might be looking to move up in the first round, with the point guard-derived team now making a late scouting push on Darius Garland.

Despite questions about his fit with teams, Reddish said during a JC Penny event in NY that he is optimistic he will be drafted in the top eight.

Just as it seemed the New York Knicks were lined up for RJ Barrett - maybe even Ja Morant, a last-second curveball was thrown into the 2019 NBA Draft plans on Tuesday.

The Celtics, though, are not the only team interested in trading up to No. 4. In early speculations of this deal, insiders expected a third team to be involved, allowing the Pelicans to move that fourth pick for additional assets.

Potentially, Garland could still be on the board when the Chicago Bulls pick comes onto the table.

Another remarked: "Google Calendar is down and I have no idea what I'm supposed to do 30 minutes from now". As of 10:30 a.m. (ET), almost 4,400 reports had been submitted from users affected by the outage.


However, one team that boasts the best treasure chest of assets now - even better than the Hawks - is the New Orleans Pelicans.

However, Garland was once a highly touted recruit out of high school, joining Vanderbilt for his only collegiate season.

As ESPN's Malika Andrews reports, the Pelicans now hold the No. 4 pick, which they acquired from the Lakers, and are said to be receiving significant interest in it.

But in sharing that news, Givony slipped in a little nugget that the Celtics are among the teams considering moving up to No. 4 in the draft with the intent of taking Garland.
