Will The Knicks add a perimeter shooter?

At the deadline, there were many great shooters being shopped by their respective teams, and despite not trading for one in late March, the option is still there to acquire one this offseason.

The Knicks have forwards who can shoot the ball at a high level such as Julius Randle, RJ Barrett, and Alec Burks, but lack shooters at the guard position with the exception of rookie point guard Immanuel Quickley and Reggie Bullock who is capable of playing both guard and forward.

Ideally, a shooting guard who can shoot from the perimeter at a high clip would be a perfect fit.

As stated before, the Knicks rank at the bottom of the league in terms of three-point shooting and could use a shooter in a huge way. This would help the Knicks spread the floor and open up the paint for their big men to operate.

The Knicks’ two centers, Mitchell Robinson and Nerlens Noel, are the defensive anchors of this team but are also capable of contributing offensively. Considering that both players very rarely leave the paint, clearing the paint to give them opportunities can help each of them respectively.

If Rose decides to go the route of trading for or signing an established shooter, names such as Buddy Hield, Evan Fournier, or even an older player such as J.J. Redick would be good fits.

There are many options for the Knicks when it comes to adding perimeter shooting, but they must add one before next season to overall boost the Knicks offensive efficiency.
