The New York Knicks have repeatedly been linked to Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry and those talks are not going anywhere as the NBA trade deadline continues to rapidly approach.

According to the latest reports, the Knicks are still pursuing a potential move with the Raptors.

From Ian Begley of ESPN:

With the NBA trade deadline three days away, the Knicks continue to try to engage the Raptors in an attempt to acquire point guard Kyle Lowry, according to league sources.

The Knicks are offering packages including Iman Shumpert, Raymond Felton and Beno Udrih, sources say. They have been reluctant to include sharpshooting rookie Tim Hardaway Jr. or a future first-round draft pick in any deal. One of those two pieces is believed to be a prerequisite for Toronto to consider giving up Lowry.

If the Raptors keep their current asking price, it may be hard to move the point guard before the deadline, but if they are willing to compromise then we may see some greater results from the team.
