Would you want Reggie Bullock back on the NY Knicks?

This idea kinda sucks and shame on the author of the Bleacher Report article for being so lazy.

Yes, Reggie Bullock had success as a member of the Knicks. And yes, he’s struggling with Dallas this season.

But the front office drew their line in the sand when they decided to bring back Alec Burks and not Reggie Bullock in the offseason.

Plus, it would further muck up the Knicks’ wing depth chart even more, or at the very least it would present them with the same issues they had before the trade.

"Bullock left New York for Dallas in free agency but has struggled to live up to his three-year, $30 million deal thus far. A reunion may be good for both sides."

The only way I would consider a Bullock trade is if it ultimately landed the Knicks Jalen Brunson, so that’s what I mocked up here.

Tim Hardaway Jr recently had surgery on his foot in which he broke a bone in last week against the Warriors and there’s no timetable for his return.

He may very well be lost for the season so Dallas who currently sits in the 6th seed in the West may need some additional help on the wing.

Again, for those who actually read these articles and don’t just react to the trades, this isn’t a trade I would ever consider.

I’m just putting together an idea that at least makes sense financially.

I don’t see a world where the Knicks take on any more role players on the wing like Reggie Bullock, but if they must, they better get a nice piece like Jalen Brunson out of the deal.

I’m also a big fan of Mike Muscala and I think he would bring a very different look to the Knicks’ frontcourt as he’s not like the traditional Centers they have on the roster today.

I’m just not taking on Reggie Bullock at this point…end of discussion.
