Knicks Looking To Add Backcourt Shooting To Help Complement RJ Barrett  

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Mar 26, 2020 5:29 am

The New York Knicks are looking to add a shooter in the backcourt to help complement RJ Barrett, sources told Ian Begley of SNY.


Former Knicks coach David Fizdale appeared on ESPN Radio and said that the Knicks needed to add more shooting to help Barrett and Mitchell Robinson.


"I love Elfrid (Payton), Frank (Ntilikina) and Dennis Smith Jr. -- but all of them have something in common in that they're not consistent 3-point shooters coming off the pick-and-roll. And if you have a super talent like Mitchell -- and I think Mitchell can end up being one of the best centers over the next ten years -- you have to have a guy coming off that pick and if you have to fight over that pick and roll. ... Like I've always said, the key to player development is spacing. You want to see players look better on the court, spread the floor," said Fizdale.


Fizdale added that Barrett's personality was built to succeed in New York City.


"I think RJ Barrett embodies the type of player who can play in New York City. Just straight hard worker, tough, talented, doesn't get rattled, knows how to deal with the press and all of the lights and things like that."

then maybe you should take a lesson from 76ers fans like me who sticked around when times were hard, whole league was against us laughing, to then transform into top Ęastern team.The satisfaction is even higher and u connect more with your team thanks to this.

How does the opinion of a former Knicks' employee is reported being what the Knicks is going to do? The journalism of this site is beyond horrible.

Wow, genius move. Who would've thought that'd be a key target, and not 15 PFs?

Theres no one in Free Agency thats a starting caliber player that we can add this offseason in that mold outside of FVV.

It would have to be through the draft and it seems like Cole Anthony and Anthony Edwards are probably the two best shooters in the draft.
Go Knicks!

I didn’t get a chance to watch Barrett much, Knick fans is he a real piece?

His natural skill and want to succeed make me pretty comfortable feeling like he could get to a Jimmy Butler/Derozen tier if developed right but the Knicks are the ones developing him so...

With that said though, of course I want my team to compliment each other but we shouldn't feel comfortable enough in where we are to ignore potential either.
