Knicks in trade talks for Magic veteran Terrence Ross

The Knicks could use NBA Draft picks to land Ross.

The Knicks are one of multiple teams to have had trade talks with Orlando about veteran swingman Terrence Ross, and they’re offering up draft picks, according to sources.

The 6-foot-6 Ross, a lottery pick by Toronto in 2012, averaged 15.6 points in 46 games for the horrendous Magic last season, but shot just 41.2 percent from the field – 33.4 percent from 3-point range.

The Knicks are trying to upgrade their wing position with Alec Burks a free agent. The Knicks have four picks in Thursday’s draft and may be offering up their second-round picks, 32 and 58. Knicks assistant Andy Greer coached Ross in Toronto.

A serviceable shooter, though turnover-prone, Ross will make $12.5 million next season. The Knicks entered draft night with cap space, with free agency beginning Aug. 2.

Ross, who was sent to Orlando in 2015, also played for Steve Clifford, who is close with Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau.

The Ringer first reported the Ross talks.
