Although the team may possess some viable options on the roster already, that being Derrick Rose or Immanuel Quickley, neither have proved to be the permanent solution at the Knicks’ most coveted position. A possible solution for New York could be Indiana Pacer’s Malcolm Brogdon.
Last season, the Pacers made it known the team was looking to sell in hopes of retooling the roster with new talent. Trade rumors surrounded Indiana’s cornerstones, such as Domantas Sabonis, Caris LeVert, Myles Turner, and Brogdon.
The two former players successfully found new homes before the trade deadline, but the latter two remain tangible trade assets for the Pacers during the offseason.
Should the New York Knicks be interested in trading for Malcolm Brogdon?
It’s extremely plausible to believe that New York would be among the clubs to call about the availability of these two, as Brogdon (guard) and Turner (center) could both be legitimate upgrades at positions the Knicks may want to improve on.
Optimism remains that New York will be able to retain Mitchell Robinson in free agency, and if so, I would not expect them to pursue Turner. I would, though, foresee them making an effort to land the 2017 NBA Rookie of the Year.
