Mitchell Robinson will need to compete with two other centers for playing time after the Knicks acquired DeAndre Jordan on Thursday.
That's assumed. The Knicks clearly have no issues sending quality veterans to DNP Island (poor Enes Kanter, man) but they may actually give Jordan some run. If they do, he figures to start, which would lead to David Fizdale juggling three centers. We've seen that movie before and it's not a good one. That said, Jordan is a trade or buyout candidate, and we do expect the Knicks to lean on Robinson and Kornet for the stretch run. MitchRob and his elite shot-blocking potential are holds, even if the next week or so might be rough.
