The Knicks’ search for a point guard continues and the list of names they’ve been linked to continues to grow.
Russell Westbrook was rumored to be an option earlier in the year and while it’s possible that the team changes its stance, the latest buzz indicates that New York is not motivated to add the former MVP via trade. The organization has its eyes on Jalen Brunson, though signs point to the Villanova product staying in Dallas. D’Angelo Russell, who could be on the trade block this summer, is on the team’s radar and make may sense depending on what the Timberwolves would require in a trade.
One name that New York appears out on is Collin Sexton (per Jake Fischer of Bleacher Report). New York isn’t projected to have significant cap space this summer, so any Sexton deal would likely have to be a sign-and-trade.
New York is also reportedly exploring options to move up in the draft with Jaden Ivey as their target. The Knicks have their future first-rounders plus an additional first-round pick in 2023 from the Kristaps Porzingis trade.
