The New York Knicks have been busy on the phones lately.

At least one team in playoff contention has shown interest in Knicks guard Elfrid Payton.

Payton, 26, has started in 25 games for the Knicks this season.

The veteran is putting up 11.9 points, 3.8 boards and 3.7 assists per game this season.

The Knicks have been a fun surprise story. They are the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference with an 11-14 record.

On Sunday, the franchise acquired former MVP Derrick Rose from the Detroit Pistons. The recent trade reunites Rose and Knicks head coach Tom Thibodeau.

Although the Knicks could use Payton’s services, they have a bunch of guards. Knicks guard Immanuel Quickley, who is the organization’s prized rookie, is gathering 12.0 points, 2.7 assists and 2.3 rebounds off the bench this season.
