Should the NY Knicks trade Kemba Walker?

I feel for Kemba Walker.

I know for a fact he was excited to get a chance to come home and play professional basketball in Madison Square Garden as a member of the New York Knicks.

But just around 20 games into the season, it was pretty obvious that Kemba’s time on the Knicks would come to an end sooner than later.

Yes, when the team was forced to bring him back into the lineup he made everyone feel stupid for doubting him.

But even with all of his tremendous performances, he’s still just a shell of his former self and I’m starting to believe that Thibs never really wanted him here in the first place.

The starting Point Guard spot has been an area of need for the Knicks for as long as I can remember.

I know it’s a priority of the front offices and Leon Rose to get that figured out sooner than later.

Kemba is just a stepping stone on the path of finally getting it right at the point.

Of all the players rumored to be available via trade this season, the ones that have been tied to the Knicks’ name were mostly all Point Guards.

De’Aaron Fox, Dejounte Murray, Jalen Brunson, and even (yuck) Ben Simmons would not only all be better fits for Thibs but would be upgrades at the Point Guard spot.

The two true areas of need and areas where the Knicks can upgrade the most would be the Point and the Center.

Of course, there are better wings out there but the Knicks can get away with not upgrading those positions because of their ridiculous depth.

If the Knicks could find a way to get one of the aforementioned PGs, I wouldn’t doubt that they make a legit run back into the playoff picture and then some.
