The New York Knicks and The Sentinel have become synonymous. Unfortunately, that’s because they haven’t had a solid starting point for the better part of the last decade.
Their never-ending quest in New York for a point guard was supposed to end last season when they signed their hometown champion Kemba Walker. But this didn’t quite work out.
Now, they will be heading into another season where they need to look for a starting point. And while draft offers some promising options, the commercial market may be their best bet.
Here are three potential deals that would give the Knicks a new starting point.
NBA Deals: 3 deals from the New York Knicks to a starting point: Indiana Pacers
Nick receives: Malcolm Brogdon
Pacers receive: Quentin Grimes, Cam Reddish, Alec Burkes, #46 Beck
This connection has been made by several outlets, with the Indiana Pacers expected to receive offers for Malcolm Brugdon this summer. And if that’s the case, then surely the Knicks should be interested.
Despite his shot numbers last season, which were oddly low, Brogdon was one of the most reliable guards in the league. He has always been an effective goalscorer, an underappreciated playmaker, and a solid defender.
New York will send two small pieces that can help the Pacers. Quentin Grimes will prove to be a tough shooter to pair alongside Tyrese Haliburton, while Cam Reddish can reset his Indiana career. Meanwhile, Alec Burks is mainly included for salary matching but it would be a nice piece of depth.
Brogdon will help the Knicks make a playoff with his veteran experience, while Grimes, Reddish and the second extra help the Pacers rebuild them.
