“At What Cost, Opportunity?” – The 2021 “Grade the Knicks Draft” Thread

This was a nice, deep draft class. There were so many good options at #19 and #21 that I promised that, unless the Knicks super reached, I would give them the benefit of the doubt. Therefore, had the Knicks drafted Quentin Grimes and Miles McBride with picks #19 and #21, then I would have said, […]

Would You Trade the Knicks’ Two Picks to Move Up to Draft Davion Mitchell?

Mitchell, the tough-nosed three-point shooting point guard for the NCAA championship Baylor Bears (and winner of all sorts of defensive awards in college), will likely not last until #19 (I doubt he lasts to #14, honestly), so if the Knicks want him, they would have to trade up to get him. Mitchell is 4 feet […]

NY Post: Knicks signing GM Scott Perry to multi-year contract extension

From Brian Lewis: The Knicks have agreed to a contract extension with general manager Scott Perry. The news was first reported by The Athletic, and a league source confirmed the multi-year extension to The Post. The team is not expected to make any statement.

The Athletic: Knicks Planning on Packaging Their Two First Rounders to Move Up in the Draft

From his latest mock draft, Zach Harper noted, ” It sounds like the Knicks will try to package their two first-rounders together to move up, but I don’t know how likely that is.” Hmmm…sounds like a poll idea for our all-poll content (we all know the real reason for the Knicks’ shocking turnaround last year […]

Predict the the NBA Finals Winners

Now that we’re tied heading into Game 5, I figured we could make some predictions again. And it’s perfect for our all-poll content!

Would You Trade Obi Toppin and the #21 Pick For Collin Sexton?

Shams reports, “The Knicks are the most aggressive trade suitor for Cavaliers guard Collin Sexton, sources said. Sexton is eligible for his rookie extension this offseason, and with one year left on his deal, it allows Cleveland to continue to be patient in constructing the roster.” And if Shams says the Knicks are “the most […]

NY Post: RJ Barrett ‘Not Considered an Untouchable in a Deal for a Superstar’

It’s buried in a Marc Berman piece about Damian Lillard, but clearly, when you get a Knick source to say, “In a Lillard trade, the Knicks don’t want to have their roster ransacked but likely are willing to give up three of their future first-round picks. RJ Barrett is not considered an untouchable in a […]

Would You Include RJ Barrett in a Trade for Damian Lillard?

Simply put, this is basically, “Would you trade for Dame if you were the Knicks?” as it seems highly unlikely that they would be able to get a deal done without including RJ Barrett. Heck, in a recent article, Ian Begley noted that no one he talked to around the league believed that the Knicks […]
