There was a sense Monday that both the Lakers and Knicks were going to be aggressive in trying to land a couple of the players they have eyes on in free agency, mainly to obtain their Bird Rights and the possibility of lower cap holds.

As the market has started churning, there is a belief that neither team has the assets to really make a splashy move happen and the idea of leveraging young guys or future draft assets to get a guy they could sign in July is unfavorable.

Both teams are still involved in talks, according to sources close to the process, but neither team seems to be close to a deal. However, that can change quickly at the deadline.
