The Knicks have explored moving up in Thursday's NBA Draft, with the team eyeing the Washington Wizards' No. 15 pick as a potential spot to trade up to, SNY's Ian Begley has learned.

It's unclear how much traction there is for that trade, per Begley, but you can be sure that the Knicks will continue to sift through their options up until they're on the clock at No. 19.

The Knicks have the No. 19 and 21 picks in the first round, though many expect them not to make both of those picks.

Whether that means trading up in the draft, trading down, or trading either or both of the picks for a veteran player remains to be seen, but as the clock continues to tick down, so too do the Knicks' options.

If New York trades up, Oregon’s Chris Duarte, Gonzaga’s Corey Kispert, Virginia’s Trey Murphy III and Baylor’s Davion Mitchell are among the main players they’ve had on their radar at times in the weeks leading up to the draft.

Duarte has strong support within the organization and some with the team have felt that Kispert would be a great addition.
