With only a few months left until the 2018-19 NBA season begins, the New York Knicks will be looking to build an lineup filled with youth and expiring contracts.
To begin the 2018-19 NBA season, the New York Knicks will have to get crafty, as they’ll be starting the season without Kristaps Porzingis. Porzingis will be sidelined by the ACL injury that he suffered 48 games into the 2017-18 season.
The Knicks could be looking to go with a smaller lineup without KP, similar to the season when Carmelo Anthony primarily played the 4.
With the additions of former Boston Celtics guard Kadeem Allen and former Portland Trail Blazers lottery pick Noah Vonleh, the Knicks will be looking to make even more changes to the roster after waiving Troy Williams not too long ago.
Taking these two into account, there will be moves made to clear space for Vonleh, but it seems that Allen may not be around long. While he has shown potential as an elite defender, the Knicks already have enough players on the roster, and too many guards in rotation.
It would be unlikely for Allen to get much playing time with the Knicks this season.
Being a fan of Ron Baker, that still goes for the guard who ended last season with a shoulder injury. Too many guards and not enough production will likely spell his demise with the Knicks.
With that being said, here is how I believe the New York Knicks’ depth chart will look to start the 2018-19 regular season.
