Knicks' forward Moe Harkless has been rumored as a buyout candidate since he was acquired from the Los Angeles Clippers as part of the Marcus Morris trade prior to the deadline.
But it looks like Harkless, a St. John's product, will finish the season with the Knicks.
"I'm not thinking about any buyout," Harkless told reporters on Friday. "I'm thinking about today, and that's just making the most of where I am now. That's it... I'll be here for the rest of the year."
The Los Angeles Lakers were reportedly monitoriing Harkless' situation in case he reached a buyout with the Knicks, according to The Athletic's Sam Amick.
Harkless was asked about potentially changing teams again on Wednesday, saying that he and his agent have yet to discuss that with the Knicks.
"I'm just taking it day by day," Harkless said at Knicks practice. "I've always loved the Knicks, so it's pretty cool to play here. I just have to wait and see what happens."
Harkless has played in one game with the Knicks, recording four points and five rebounds in 25 minutes of action against the Washington Wizards on Feb. 12. He's averaging 5.5 points per game on 50.9 percent shooting from the field in 51 games this season.
