The Cleveland Cavaliers and New York Knicks have discussed trading the No. 5 pick for Nos. 8 and 23, according to Kelsey Russo of The Athletic.

The Cavaliers are however, holding out for more.

After just acquiring the No. 23 pick from the Utah Jazz, the Knicks may be looking to use that pick to help them trade up for a top pick in the draft.

The Knicks and Cavaliers have been the two teams most frequently linked to Dayton’s Obi Toppin, so it’s possible that he is the center of the Knicks’ attention in moving up.
