The New York Knicks are trying to trade guard Wayne Ellington and are willing to include Pablo Prigioni to get a deal done, ESPN's Marc Stein reports.

According to Stein, the Knicks want to create a roster spot by trading Ellington but haven't been able to find a suitor for his $2.7 million expiring contract. While the Knicks value Prigioni, they are willing to include him to complete a trade.

Ellington, 26, was acquired along with Jose Calderon, Samuel Dalembert and Shane Larkin from the Dallas Mavericks for Tyson Chandler and Raymond Felton earlier this offseason. He averaged 3.2 points in 45 games last season for Dallas.

Prigioni, 37, has played the last two seasons with the Knicks, averaging 3.7 points and 3.2 assists per game. He will make $1.6 million this season.
