NY Knicks Postseason Trade Target #1 – Malcolm Brogdon

Obviously, this trade would only happen if the Pacers decided to move on from either Sabonis or Turner…or potentially both.

The Pacers aren’t looking too good and even with their talent level from top to bottom being much greater than the Knicks’, they’re still just in 9th place in the East.

The organization may decide its best to rebuild and retool the roster, so bringing in 2 young players in Obi Toppin and Kevin Knox would be a step in the right direction for them.

As much as I have grown to love both Obi Toppin and Kevin Knox, their fit on the team moving forward is going to be a bit awkward.

For all those out there who give me grief about my trade articles…ask yourself this question…

Where does Kevin Knox fit on this team for next season?

Heck, he’s not even in the rotation now and the team should only get better next year, therefore, making it harder for Knox to get any burn whatsoever.

Is it really worth paying someone $6 million to ride the bench for another season?

I say no 1000 times.

Now, regarding Obi Toppin, he was drafted with the idea in mind that the Knicks would be looking to move on from Julius Randle.

Needless to say, Julius Randle isn’t getting traded anymore.

Sure, he can improve his game and become less one-dimensional on offense over time but if he’s not getting minutes behind Randle, then what’s the point of keeping him when there are so many other holes that need to be filled.

We’ve discussed the inevitability of him being traded in the near future here, and I say they should at least entertain the idea.
