The New York Knicks have been patiently eyeing the trade market for a superstar, with Joel Embiid being the most popular name in rumors. As shaky as the situation in Philadelphia currently is, there’s always the chance Embiid will remain committed to the Sixers and not request a trade.
Arguably, New York’s best player in its preseason games has been Mitchell Robinson. Tom Thibodeau has referred to Robinson as one of the best offensive rebounders in the league, and the starting center has looked even more aggressive this preseason.
Yahoo Sports’ Vincent Goodwill reported on Sept. 29 that the Knicks’ asking price for Robinson is “multiple first-round picks.” Goodwill didn’t say that the front office was shopping Robinson but instead used it as a point of reference for the trade value of centers around the league.
Bleacher Report mock Knicks-Pacers trade has Myles Turner landing in New York
