NBA trade rumors are heating up as the Feb. 9 deadline approaches. As usual, the New York Knicks find themselves involved in the discussion to make a move ahead of the NBA trade deadline as they look to improve their positioning in the Eastern Conference playoff race.

According to Michael Scotto of HoopsHype, Utah Jazz shooting guard Malik Beasley has long been on the Knicks’ radar, even dating back to before the career 38% 3PT shooter signed an extension with the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2020 and has remained interested ever since.

The Jazz, who are said to be considering becoming trade deadline sellers, could be open to parting with Beasley, who comes off the bench but is averaging 13.6 points per game in 27 minutes per contest.
