* Having been trumped by the Timberwolves' successful bid for Washington's No. 5 pick, the Knicks reportedly have taken aim at Oklahoma City's No. 3 selection. As noted Tuesday, Donnie Walsh's target is Davidson's Stephen Curry, whom Mike D'Antoni envisions as the kind of play-maker and scorer who would ignite his spread-the-floor, pick-and-roll offense. The scenario was floated by the Racine Journal-Times, which also notes that the Bucks are planning to use the No. 10 pick on Syracuse point guard Jonny Flynn. That means veteran point guard Luke Ridnour is on his way out.

* If the Thunder keep the third pick and wind up with Spanish point guard Ricky Rubio, the team's current point guard -- Russell Westbrook -- will be none too pleased. Asked by ESPN The Magazine about moving to shooting guard to allow Rubio to play the point, Westbrook's response was as follows: "You trippin'."

* Oklahoma City also is reportedly offering its 25th overall pick to Phoenix for the 14th and the unprotected 2010 pick the Suns lost in the Kurt Thomas trade two years ago. Thunder GM Sam Presti is said to be targeting Ohio State center B.J. Mullens.

* As we discussed previously, Ty Lawson worked out Tuesday for the Trail Blazers, who continue to covet a point guard and are said to be angling for a higher pick -- perhaps Minnesota's fifth or sixth. Philadelphia, with the 17th pick, also is high on Lawson.
