You have to draft well and make shrewd signings to "rebuild." If the Knicks strike out in FA (likely) why even continue with this? This is currently a bottom 3 roster at best, with no building blocks and no real cohesion. It's a mid 2000's Knicks kind of roster built around shooting without a purpose.
There needs to be changes if Durant and another star dont come because we're wasting our time. Bottoming out for the first pick doesnt work anymore.
just add RJ to the young group of dsj knox mitch trier, frank if the knicks don't get rid of him, and see who sticks, if it's possible to use the cap space to take on an expiring contract to get another pick I'd also do that
Yea at this point I hope Perry is looking more into being a team that’s willing to help facilitate a trade for AD or another big star as a 3rd team who can take on unwanted contracts for picks. Maybe if Boston wanted to dump Hayward while bringing in AD, we could take him for 1 or 2 first rounders this draft.
Tatum to Pels
AD to Boston
Hayward and #14 (or #20 & #22) to us
Possible if Boston wanted to have more room to maybe sign another top FA like Kemba or Butler, or someone else. Kemba, AD, Horford, and Jaylen traded elsewhere for another player... like Beal or someone.
Who knows... there’s a million possibilities. But adding another top 8-10 pick next year, RJ this year, and using cap space to gain more picks is def on the right track.
