Trade SZN is in full effect and I could not be any more excited about it.

In a recent article, my colleagues over at Soaring Down South, an Atlanta Hawks fan-site under the FanSided banner discussed the idea of 3 potential trades involving the Hawks and Knicks.

I for one would be more than happy to steal away some valuable assets from the fellow Eastern Conference rival and current Knicks’ punching bag, Atlanta Hawks in order to further elevate New York’s quest towards the 2021 playoffs.

At the time this is being written, the Knicks have a record of 14-16 and just suffered an embarrassing loss to the Orlando Magic to the tune of 107-89.

I do believe that the Knicks genuinely just get too comfortable when they’re playing well and that they need to lose silly games like this most recent one in order to become hungry again.

That being said, the Knicks must upgrade on the offensive side of the ball. It’s heartbreaking to see the defense playing lights-out game after game, but when it comes to scoring the basketball, the Knicks seem lost outside of Julius Randle and occasionally Immanuel Quickley.

Should the Knicks take a peek at the Hawks’ roster to see who’s available?

The trades proposed by Soaring Down South don’t exactly fit the needs of a team looking to “win now” but if the losses keep piling up from now until the March 25th trade deadline, I would be happy to entertain a few of them.

Here we will discuss some pros and cons of said trades, and I’ll be breaking down who I believe the winner and loser of each trade would be.
