If the Knicks make a move by Thursday’s 3 p.m. trade deadline, it likely will be dealing out-of-the-rotation point guard Beno Udrih. Iman Shumpert was a top candidate to be traded until he sprained his left knee during Wednesday’s 98-91 win over the Pelicans. Udrih, who didn’t play versus New Orleans, has been in coach Mike Woodson’s doghouse for a few weeks and has not played in 13 of the last 14 games. Udrih told The Post the Wizards tried signing him this summer and have made a pitch to the Knicks. ESPN.com has reported the Nuggets have offered the Knicks small forward Jordan Hamilton, a former first-round pick. “It’s not in my control,’’ Udrih said. “I’m here right now. If something happens it happens. We’ll see [Thursday]. Right now I’m going to relax and wait.’’ With Shumpert going down, Woodson said Udrih possibly could return to the rotation in the wake of the injury. “I really don’t know if that’s going to change anything or not,’’ Udrih said. “It’s disappointing,’’ added Udrih, who turned down the Spurs last summer. “I thought [I was] going to have a different role. That’s the direction they’re going. I’ve kept working hard to stay in shape. That’s all I can control right now.” Amar’e Stoudemire, who likely will be the focus of trade talk at next year’s deadline, if not this summer when he officially has a monstrous expiring contract, said he doesn’t expect any trades.
