The New York Knicks have been one of the pleasant surprises of the NBA season. They are currently in the hunt for a postseason spot, which is something that was not expected coming into the year. New York has a chance to build something over the next few years and it can be done quicker if they opt to look for a trade in the offseason.
The Knicks have to get a big-name player in the lineup. They have not been able to land that star presence, either in free agency or the trading block. This has haunted the front office and turned the team into a laughingstock.
This year, they are proving that they have some key pieces for the future. This includes young players like RJ Barrett and Immanuel Quickley. Also, Julius Randle putting up an all-star campaign certainly did not hurt. The foundation is there and it is important to keep building further.
The Indiana Pacers have some pieces that the Knicks might like. Indiana has been busy since the beginning of the season. They sent Victor Oladipo away and this set their sights on other options. Indiana has fallen down in the standings but has taken advantage of a weak Eastern Conference and is still in the hunt.
Over the last few weeks, players like Malcolm Brogdon and Domantas Sabonis have come up in trade rumors. No one is safe right now in Indiana and that includes Myles Turner.
This is a big man that would fill a huge hole in the Knicks’ lineup. Let’s take a look at a potential deal that would land the big man in New York moving forward.
