What will the New York Knicks do at point guard?

This could go so many ways. A lack of any competent point guard play has arguably been the Knicks’ biggest issue this year.

Losing Derrick Rose for the majority of the season has turned out to be a catastrophic blow. Hopefully, Rose will be able to stay healthier next year. The only other “proven” point guard on the roster, Kemba Walker, has now been shut down for the season.

The team has been playing a bizarre medley where Alec Burks starts at point guard with Immanuel Quickley getting some minutes in reserve.

If New York continues to lose and finds itself with a high draft pick, perhaps the answer lies there. I know fans are already tantalized by the potential of landing Purdue guard Jaden Ivey.

The Knicks could go in a few different directions and it’s too soon to say exactly what their cap situation will look like. Offering current Dallas Mavericks point guard Jalen Brunson a large contract has certainly been discussed given his multiple ties to New York’s organization.

Maybe the team goes with a cheaper veteran option? The problem is that a lot of these “stop-gap” options have a hard time panning out with the Knicks and they’re going to have to find a long-term solution sooner rather than later.
