The New York Knicks might not be done upgrading the roster for the 2016-17 season.

Sam Amico of Amico Hoops reports the Knicks are among the teams interested in Milwaukee Bucks center Greg Monroe, who is on the trading block after Milwaukee’s re-signing of Miles Plumlee.

Monroe, the No. 7 pick in the 2010 draft, has two years left on his deal with the Bucks with a player option for 2017-18. The 26-year-old averaged 15.3 points and 8.8 rebounds last season.

The Knicks would likely need a third team to help facilitate a trade for Monroe, Amico adds. Joakim Noah, who the team signed in free agency, is the projected starter at center. But Noah, 31, is coming off shoulder surgery.

According to Gery Woelfel of The Racine Journal Times, because teams around the NBA know the Bucks want to move on from Monroe, he doesn’t have a ton of trade value. But some NBA officials believe he could land the Bucks a mid- or late-first-round pick.

The Knicks more likely would need to wait until at least December to work out a trade for Monroe. We’ll see what happens five months from now.

Can you name every New York Knicks player to have his jersey retired?

Two jerseys with the number 15 were retired. A jersey with the number 613 was retired in 1990 in honor of a long-time coach.
