2. Donte DiVincenzo

Donte DiVincenzo headed the 2023 free agency class, and he's played even better in 2023-24 than in 2022-23. The sharpshooter is averaging a career-high 14.3 points on 44% shooting from the field and 40% shooting from three on an average of eight attempts per game.

He signed a four-year, $50 million contract with the Knicks as a free agent. Over the next three seasons, he'll make $11.4 million (2024-25), $11.9 million (2025-26), and $12.5 million (2026-27). He's already outplayed the $10.9 million he's making this season.

DiVincenzo should be part of New York's core long-term, but again, if the right star becomes available, the opposing front office would be doing a disservice if they didn't inquire about the 27-year-old. He isn't a promising young player, but he's played so well as a Knick that he's upped his trade value. His salary could be used as filler in a deal.

The Villanova backcourt has been a success. The only reason that should change is if the front office feels as if they can't pass up on a certain star.
