New York Knicks

This summer will determine whether this standing is way too high or laughably low. For now, that means it ought to be just right.
The’Bockers are a blank canvas. The Kristaps Porzingis deadline bargain erased most of long-term commitments. Their highest guaranteed salary for next season is Frank Ntilikina’s $4.9 million. No dream is too big for the Knicks right now. As Bleacher Report’s Dan Favale broke down, it’s not impossible to find a scenario where Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and Anthony Davis all call Madison Square Garden home next season.
Is it possible? Not in the least. However, if the Knicks have their built-in marketplace advantages, plus loads of cap room and a good shot at securing the No. 1 pick, that is an army of assets most clubs will struggle to match.
There’s also an underground floor.
Cap space may not imply Irving and/or Durant. Maybe it’s Kemba Walker and Khris Middleton. Perhaps it’s not any one. Given the revamped lottery chances, the Knicks may end up drafting fourth or fifth. So, rather than Zion Williamson (along with a possible path to Davis), maybe the draft haul is only Cam Reddish or Jarrett Culver.
New York already has some youth set up, although its possible is in flux. While Mitchell Robinson appears before schedule and Allonzo Trier has been a huge surprise, Kevin Knox looks predictably raw. Additionally, Dennis Smith Jr. is far from a sure thing, also Ntilikina’s prognosis is cloudy at best.
