The New York Knicks are trading No. 11 overall pick Ousmane Dieng to the Oklahoma City Thunder, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Athletic's Shams Charania reports the Knicks will receive: protected Detroit Pistons, Washington Wizards and Denver Nuggets first-round picks in 2023 from the Thunder.

With the trade, the Thunder secured three picks within the first 12 selections on Thursday, starting with Chet Holmgren at No. 3, followed by Dieng at No. 11 and Jalen Williams at No. 12.

The Knicks were previously reportedly looking to move up the lottery to select Purdue standout Jaden Ivey, and even tried to trade for him after the Detroit Pistons selected him fifth overall, but Detroit ultimately decided to hang on to Ivey, according to The Athletic's James Edwards III.

Dieng, 19, played professional basketball for the New Zealand Breakers of the National Basketball League in 2021-22. The season before, the Villeneuve-sur-Lot, France, native played in France's first division with Centre Fédérale, where he averaged 12.6 points, 5.8 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game.
