The New York Knicks are on the verge of several major changes as they look to steer their ship in the right direction.
After the firing of coach David Fizdale, ownership is considering changes from the top as well, including Basketball President Steve Mills and team GM Scott Perry.
As far as the roster goes, you can expect some moves there as well. And while the free-agent class this summer is rather thin, there is one name that the Knickerbockers could focus on heading into the offseason: Brandon Ingram.
“[T]he Knicks should throw a max contract at New Orleans Pelicans restricted free agent Brandon Ingram,” Swartz posited. “The 22-year-old forward and Barrett could develop into a deadly offensive wing combo should the Pelicans choose not to match the elevated salary.”
“We definitely should have won this basketball game. I don’t know what happened in the 3rd quarter, but if I was there in the 3rd quarter with all of the flopping and the other [stuff] that was going on, we would have won that basketball game.” Brandon Ingram after loss to #Suns pic.twitter.com/fDiSHzJBcZ

This season, B.I. is averaging a career-high 24.6 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 assists per game on 49% shooting. As a front-runner for the Most Improved Player award, Ingram has been the backbone for the Pels this year.
It’s hard to say how he would fare in a place like New York, but clearly they are considering all options as the team makes several franchise changes.
