5 Trade Scenarios New York Knicks Would Be Smart to Consider

127 days ago

The New York Knicks aren’t in a position to nitpick when it comes to improving the roster. Capped out, with no draft picks available to trade until 2018 and few viable assets on the roster, the Knicks and Phil Jackson don’t have an easy road to becoming a contender.

With only the $3 million mini mid-level exception and minimum salaries at its disposal this summer to sign free agents, New York should be active in trade talks this summer—particularly if it’s looking to enter this year’s star-studded draft. That clock is ticking, though, with only six days until draft day on June 26.

There have been a few unrealistic rumors floating about, namely the Knicks sending Tyson Chandler to Golden State for David Lee and Harrison Barnes, per Marcus Thompson of the Bay Area News Group. Faux blockbusters like that aren’t likely for New York, but there are a number of lower-profile deals that could help re-establish the team as a playoff contender.

And the team has to deal with Carmelo Anthony’s impending free agency.

New York’s makeup next season is still largely unknown, but here are a few transactions that Jackson should consider.
