So in 2020 play offs (closer to a YEAR ago). His offensive numbers were solid. Even versus the Lakers he averaged 16 pts a game on .50 shooting....in the Western Conference finals. His handles have improved . Dude is a major reason they even made it that far,. I think he'd fit very well between JR and RJ and would restore defensive cohesion to our starting lineup.
But he did so playing the 4.
Whatever he did then (11.6 ppg, -11.5 on/off per 100 in the 2020 playoffs, it's not like he was contributing like crazy, he was a role player), is not translatable to the Knicks. He would be playing a different position and a different role here, which his skill set isn't suited for.
The Knicks would be playing two Randles at the same time - except one is a better passer than the other, and the other a better defender.
We'll have to agree to disagree I think it would be translatable. He'd be filling the same roll as Bullock only with way better versatility on both sides of the ball. Randle cant guard 1-5 positions.
We can disagree for sure, but Grant wouldn't be filling the same role as Bullock.
Bullock is a 3-point shooter who can spot-up, navigate screens on the weak side and take quick-release 3s.
Grant doesn't do any of that. That's not his game.
Actually, Grant had two good years from 3 but he's been a poor 3-point shooter throughout most of his career, including the last two years.
He's not that good bro.
Trading for him would further cement our fate as a treadmill team. RJ-Grant-Randle is a nightmare of inefficiency.
