NY Knicks trade target #3 – Harrison Barnes

Harrison Barnes had one of his better seasons of his career this year and could very well be a part of the Kings’ long-term plans.

But, then again, they’re a pretty awful team and having Barnes on the team will not help them improve.

They’re better off dumping him elsewhere and using that cap space on several younger players who fit De’Aaron Fox’s timeline better.

Barnes is due $20 million during this upcoming season and $18 million the following, so not the hardest contract for the Knicks to absorb.

He could realistically fill in as the starting small forward on day 1 and put another shooter in between Julius Randle and RJ Barrett.

Anywho, here is the trade:

The Kings get 2 young assets in Frank Ntilikina and Kevin Knox to help aid in their rebuild and help to get younger overall.

I like the idea of pairing Fox and Frank in the starting lineup sometimes, or even perhaps having Frank play next to Haliburton.

I think he complements both of their games well.

Knox has proven he can be a solid 3-point shooter, most notably from the corner and for a team that struggled to shoot the ball sometimes, ranking 17th in the league, he could fit in well off the bench.
