The New York Knickerbockers have clearly reached their breaking point this season. After firing David Fizdale, the team is reportedly considering some serious roster changes.
As that date approaches, the Knicks (4-18) are keeping an eye on potential moves that would improve the team, per SNY sources familiar with the matter.
According to various reports, players like Dennis Schroeder, DeMar DeRozan and Kevin Love could be made available via trade by their respective teams.
The Knicks, per a source, are keeping their ‘eye on a lot of players’ as we enter trade season.
The unofficial start to NBA trade season begins on December 15th, when players who signed contracts as free agents are eligible to be moved.
By that point, it will be too late for the Knicks to turn things around this season. But with a star already on the roster, it will be easier for New York to sign stars this upcoming summer.
DeRozan and Love may just be the start of their “plans” going forward.
Unfortunately, we don’t have much reason to think things will turn out much better this time than all the others. With no coach, a lousy front-office and another season of misdirection, it will take more than a trade to get this team on the right track.
