Trading for an exciting, 22-year-old who’s still on his rookie contract that also fills a pretty big need for the Knicks is such a savvy, on-brand move for Leon Rose, so it didn’t come as much of a surprise to me when it went down.
I am the President of the Leon Rose Fanclub, that man can do no wrong in my eyes.
How he keeps getting away with these absolute fleece jobs is beyond me.
That said, the Knicks currently have 6 guys who play either the Shooting Guard or Small Forward position on the wing.
Should the NY Knicks trade any of these players?
Because the front office put such a premium on bringing in guys who could create off the bounce and bring the ball up the court on occasion, the Knicks are currently utilizing non-Point Guards out of position to run the offense.
Once Kemba Walker returns from his injury, it’s going to create a pretty big issue for the rotation.
When Derrick Rose returns in about a month or so, the Knicks are going to have to make the decision to move on from at least a couple of players.
This Cam Reddish trade couldn’t have made it more obvious that the Knicks are serious about trying to contend, or at the very least remain in the playoff picture.
Because the deal yesterday damn near guarantees that the Knicks are looking to make another trade before the February 10th trade deadline.
With Kevin Knox no longer on the team, the most obvious trade piece the Knicks had is now gone.
So now, they’re gonna have to get creative in who they’re willing to let go of.
Your favorite Knicks player may no longer be on the team pretty soon, so enjoy them while they’re all still here.
Here are the 3 current players I believe the Knicks should entertain trade offers for next.
