The NY Knicks have stars rumored to be on their way to the Mecca in the offseason?

Color me shocked…

It’s been difficult to be a Knicks fan for quite some time now because while the team should probably stick to building the ‘right way’, any time there’s a disgruntled star or marquee free agent available, he’s almost always rumored to New York.

It drives the fanbase into a frenzy every time and gives the talking heads in the media something to ramble about for a few days to keep the eyeballs of the people glued to their screen of preference.

They call it “Knicks for Clicks” and the formula ALWAYS works.

Which star would you like to see in NY Knicks Orange and Blue next year?

As fans, we have so much to be excited about regarding the current core of the Knicks and the team’s future.

Ending the season as the 4th best team in the Eastern Conference with the lowest payroll in the league and a slew of draft capital over the next few seasons is a massive accomplishment.

Having a ‘homegrown’ All-Star in Julius Randle, and I say homegrown because this is a brand new version of Julius we’ve never seen before…

Plus an All-Star caliber talent in the making like RJ Barrett…

Alongside a number of promising young prospects…

The Knicks are set up for long-term success, but that’s not gonna stop anyone from trying to ‘speed up’ their rebuild by rumoring a big trade or signing.

Here I’ll be discussing the 5 most likely stars that could become Knicks in the offseason and how they would make their way to the team.
