NY Knicks Mitchell Robinson trade #3 – Aaron Nesmith & picks

So, just to give the readers a little bit of a look into my train of thought when I do these mock trade scenarios…

I go to the NBA Trade Machine and I scour through all of the rosters one by one and try to look at who needs what before I write these articles.

There are probably 10 other teams that would make a trade for Mitchell Robinson so that I wouldn’t have to trade with Boston of all teams (yuck).

But when looking at the rosters as they stand now, I have to go based on who needs a center today.

One of those teams is Boston…so we’re gonna fleece them.

Boston gets Mitch…hate to see it happen but they really can use a solid center.

The Knicks get a promising but underperforming rookie in Aaron Nesmith whom I’ve traded for before in previous articles. Big fan of the guy from his college days.

The Knicks also acquire Boston’s 1st round pick this season and yet another 2nd rounder from the 2023 ‘double draft’. Super valuable draft to have as many picks as possible.

This trade would give the Knicks a nice bench shooter if Alec Burks were to get signed elsewhere.

It would also give the Knicks 3 picks within the 15 to 25 range which would give them the ability to trade up into the top 5 if they wanted to.

I personally don’t like the idea of trading with Eastern Conference teams in general, but especially not Boston…

But if this were the deal Danny Ainge offered, I’d be hard-pressed not to take it if I’m Leon Rose.
