Duncan Robinson, Miami Heat
Piggybacking on the possibility that the New York Knicks could be in search of some added shooting heading into the NBA Trade Deadline, especially if the team continues to trend toward the pedestrian side into the season, Duncan Robinson could be an intriguing option.
For all his issues, in a vacuum, Robinson is one of the better shooters in the game right now. If he isn’t traded by the Miami Heat before the start of the season (in a potential deal for Damian Lillard), it wouldn’t be surprising if he emerges as a candidate to be moved at the deadline.
Of course, the hesitance on potentially making a move for Robinson would revolve around his contract. He has two guaranteed years on his contract (including this season) and a player option for the 2025-26 season. For as good of a shooter as Robinson may be, with the amount of playoff experience he has, that may not be enough to offset the poor future investment this move could end up being.
Nevertheless, he could emerge as an option at the trade deadline, especially if the Knicks don’t address their shooting before and if he isn’t moved before the start of the season.
