NBA Trade Rumors: Knicks Among Teams Pushing To Move Ahead Of Jazz, Pick Jimmer Fredette

Jimmer Fredette is the target of the New York Knicks and other teams hoping to move ahead of the Utah Jazz at No. 12 in Thursday's 2011 NBA Draft, reports Chad Ford of ESPN. The Jazz have the No. 3 and No. 12 picks; rumors and mock drafts suggest they could take either a point guard like Brandon Knight or Kemba Walker at No. 3, or a bigger player like Enes Kanter, Derrick Williams or Jan Vesely. If they do the latter, Fredette, the BYU sharpshooter, is the popular target at No. 12.

The Knicks have the No. 17 pick and few other assets, apart from 2011 All-Rookie team member Landry Fields, who was a second-round pick in the 2010 draft. Ford reports that the teams from No. 9 to No. 11 -- the Charlotte Bobcats, Milwaukee Bucks and Golden State Warriors -- are open to moving their pick.

Stay tuned with all of the latest NBA Draft rumors.
