Knicks Hoping for Stephen Curry, Tyreke Evans or Jrue Holiday

The Knicks love UCLA freshman Jrue Holiday, but they didn’t like his pre-draft workout June 10, when he got outplayed by Stephen Curry. So team president Donnie Walsh has succeeded in luring Holiday back to the team’s Westchester compound Monday for a second workout, according to a source.

Selecting No. 8 in Thursday’s draft, the Knicks have narrowed their point-guard search to three guys: Curry, Memphis’ Tyreke Evans and Holiday, in that order. There’s a strong chance Curry and Evans will not be around at 8, and the Knicks have considered moving up.

The Knicks also are exploring buying another first-round pick from a team in the 20’s, because they don’t have a 2010 selection. Arizona power forward Jordan Hill also is in the mix if he drops to them at 8.
