I have to think Wes is working those back channels as we speak... With the Kentucky connection we're an obvious fit for him. But I would not actively trade for that deal unless they really sweeten the pot. I think if you're looking to take a bad deal on Kemba would be the better option because he only has 1 year on short rest of bad production under his belt and he still had moments last year where he looked like his normal self. Also his archetype is a better fit with the roster than Wall's is. We need shot making in the playoffs. Kemba, when right, gives you that at an elite level.

If Wall is just cut loose he would be insane to not find his way onto a contender. MLE Lakers and a chance at a ring is better than a chance to start in NY for a best case 2nd round team.


Is it though? Yes he can challenge for a title, but he's not a natural fit there because LBJ and AD aren't natural shooters. Adding the 3rd non-shooter isn't exactly ideal to that and we saw what happened to Schroder when they actually got to the playoffs. He could never really get his footing and he probably cost himself tons of money this offseason.

Wall might look at it and say I can walk into the Knicks, with staff that is comfortable with him, be the starter, have the ball in my hands more and prove I can play on a winning team, stay healthy and also be able to showcase himself a little bit as well because the Knicks need another real ball handler. If he goes to the Lakers he has to sit back and watch LeBron and AD try to cook everything up and if it doesn't work out with them he's going to tank his value because they will bench him (see Drummond).

I think, in the scenario you're talking about the best situation for him would be the Clippers. They are desperate for some ball handling and playmaking away from PG and Kawhi. They are loaded with shooters for him to spray the ball out to which was always his best skill and they have enough defenders to cover for his lost ability on that end.

But at the end of the day money talks and the Knicks, if all else fails can give him a bigger pay day than any other team can.

It depends on if Wall wants to sacrifice an extra 5-10 million to play for a contender or get a chance at another bigger deal down the line by giving the Knicks good production as more of a focal point.

Lonzo is a treadmill point guard, likely loses his matchup on most nights . But especially vs any above average to good point guard

If the Indiana Pacers decide to make Myles Turner available in a trade this offseason, they're expected to receive significant interest.

The Charlotte Hornets, Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks have expressed interest in Turner for a significant amount of time. The Minnesota Timberwolves also have strong interest in Turner.

J. Michael of the Indianapolis Star believes the Hornets are the team who is most likely to deliver an aggressive offer for Turner.

Turner makes sense if you ship Mitch to Indy or to another team. Otherwise really not the focus considering both the contract and, more importantly, the cost in assets to trade for him. Maybe in a package deal with Brogdon. I'm not a huge fan of Brogdon but his contract is not onerous and he's better than many of the other obvious options out there.

Turner intrigues me because he provides a lot of what Mitch provides but also lets it fly. I would guess my Sexton dreams are dashed if we pursue him.


I like Turner because he can play some backup 4 at times, but obviously, because he provides shooting at the 5

Doesn’t change that he also said we’ve been interested in him for a significant amount of time. Knicks know we need a stretch 5 who can block shots. You know it deep down too, that’s why you hyped up all those Ymca videos of Mitch shooting For the past 3 years :lol:

what we need are real stars, not the stiff brick go left brothers. i don't even care much about the rest of this until they figure that out. if they do anything but put kawhi and dame together or trade randle and tank, i'll be disappointed. imagine being excited over sexton and turner :lol:
