2. Bullock reunion in NYC

The San Antonio Spurs have been the team most linked to Evan Fournier. There is interest in pairing him with his countryman Victor Wembanyama to ease the highly-touted prospect’s introduction to the NBA. San Antonio also had cap space and was willing to take on bad contracts, but that has been used this offseason.

The Spurs remain the favorites to land Fournier, and if the Knicks are willing to wait until after September 10th, the deal could look like this.

Bullock cannot be traded with another player until two months after he was dealt from Dallas to San Antonio in the Grant Williams sign-and-trade.  That is still three-plus weeks before training camp begins, so it should create zero issues for either team.

The Pistons’ selection in 2024 is heavily protected over four drafts, and there is zero guarantee that it stays a first-rounder. If it does, it will likely be in the mid-to-late first round. The Knicks should be willing to part with it for a wing upgrade. They would have to add Khem Birch, but his expiring contract could be used in another trade or get bought out.

Reggie Bullock was a key rotation piece for Tom Thibodeau’s Knicks in 2021 when they surprisingly made the playoffs. Expect him to fit right in as a 3-and-D option that improves the Knicks’ chances of making a deep playoff run.
