The New York Knicks are reportedly eyeing up a big move in tomorrow's NBA Draft. They are in talks with the Memphis Grizzlies, according to multiple reports.

The Knicks own the No. 9 pick, but are reportedly discussing a trade with the Grizzlies for the No. 4 pick. The Knicks last had a selection that high in 2015, when they chose Kristaps Porzingis.

Per ESPN's Ian Begley, the target for the Knicks is Texas big man Mo Bamba,

Obviously, the Knicks aren't the only team that would be willing to move up for Bamba. He's viewed as a big man with tremendous defensive potential and he's shown an improved shooting touch in recent workouts.

Would New York take back Chandler Parsons' bad contract? That could be the determining factor.

Stay tuned as the NBA rumor mill continues to churn.

The 2018 NBA Draft will be held at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Thursday night.
