The New York Knicks are moving up in Wednesday’s NBA draft, acquiring the Utah Jazz’s pick at No. 23 in exchange for the No. 27 and No. 38 selections, sources told ESPN.
The Knicks will now hold the No. 8 and No. 23 picks in Wednesday’s draft, the first for the team under new president of basketball operations Leon Rose.
The Jazz will also send the Knicks the draft rights to 2008 second-round pick Ante Tomic, 33, who isn’t expected to join the NBA.
