With NBA training camps opening in September, the Knicks have a lot of time to complete their roster.
Expecting too much from either player this year would be mistake. With that said, both of New York’s first-round picks could be starters at some point this season.
Regardless of all the moves the Knicks have made, what happens this upcoming season and the next three after that is still completely dependent on Carmelo Anthony.
It’s Las Vegas summer league basketball. Who cares, right? Well, at least this year, Knicks fans should care very much.
The Knicks are in a long-term rebuild and getting a player with that type of upside is exactly the type of asset they should be targeting.
The preference would be for Anthony to play power forward, so the Knicks should target a small forward or shooting guard to fill that void.
There are still plenty of useful players available that can help the Knicks build for the future in different ways, whether it be in free agency or via trade.
Sign the best available players that could be good assets, and provide the team flexibility as it tries to make moves over the next couple of years to get back to relevance.
Ideally, anyone joining the Knicks should be younger than 30, play both ends of the floor and be a good value. Let’s take a look at the options.
The Knicks have virtually no size on their roster, save for project Kristaps Porzingis. They need a rim protector. They need someone that can play, score, and pass out of the post.
Considering the Knicks’ current state, they would be best suited going after the younger group of free agents on the market.
The Knicks might have turned a corner on Thursday night. For the first time in a long time, they actually acted like a real NBA organization with a long-term plan.
Draft night is finally here. Knicks fans went through the worst regular season in team history, and this is the payoff.
This is my big board for the 2015 NBA draft. Keep in mind that I am looking at the draft from the perspective of the Knicks’ front office.
Keep in mind that the draft, by its nature, is a crap shoot. I’ll likely be wrong for more than one of these guys. That’s part of the fun.
