The New York Knicks will try to convince Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo into forcing through a trade move to Madison Square Garden.
Fox Sports claim the Knicks are desperate to land a point guard who will be able to get the best out of Carmelo Anthony.
And Knicks general manager Steve Mills has highlighted Rondo as the man who the Eastern Conference franchise should try to lure to New York City.
The Knicks will reportedly look to sign Rondo as soon as he returns from an ACL injury.
Rondo is yet to play for the Celtics this season due to the serious injury he picked up at the end of last season.
The NBA star will become a free agent in 2015, however the Knicks are hoping Rondo will force through a move during the next couple of months.
Rondo's Celtics are currently one place above the Knicks in the Atlantic Division, having won three games more than the New York-based franchise.
