Frank Isola reports that Donnie Walsh and his Knick front office "remain optimistic that they can trade up" to select Ricky Rubio on draft night.
Walsh praised Jonny Flynn in talking with the media today. "He's a great athlete. If you need a point guard, you can go with him," he said.
Of Tyreke Evans, Walsh said: "He's powerful. He's got a great handle and if he has an opening, he's strong."
Isola speculates that the Knicks could swap picks with the Kings to take Sacramento's 4th selection, although it is not clear for whom they would do so other than Rubio.
