The Knicks might not be done dealing. Team president Donnie Walsh said he will continue to seek a center through a trade before Thursday’s 3 p.m. ET deadline, though he was not optimistic he would be successful.

“We think we moved the rock ahead a little bit, but let’s don’t get carried away and think now we’re challenging Miami, Boston and all these teams. We’re just not there yet,” said Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni, noting the Knicks’ biggest needs are size and shooting to replace the departed Timofey Mozgov, Danilo Gallinari and Wilson Chandler.

D’Antoni said Ronny Turiaf would be his center in a starting lineup that will include Amare Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony, Landry Fields and Chauncey Billups.
