Several teams in touch with the Knicks recently came away with the impression that New York is not solely focused on acquiring draft picks, expiring contracts or young players.
Those teams say that the Knicks have instead shown an interest in acquiring starter-level players who can help the team in the short-term and in future seasons. This is definitely surprising because the Knicks are 10-27, tied for the third-worst record in the NBA, and the front office faces a tenuous future because of the team's poor play. It’s unclear who continues to have fantasy value in New York for the rest of the season while the trade rumors will only heat up as we move closer to the trade deadline.
