The New York Knicks reached a huge milestone by returning to the NBA playoffs after years of subpar play. But now that they've sniffed success, they aren't ready to slow down.
This offseason, the Knicks have been involved in a number of different trade rumors.
Most recently, the franchise has been rumored to be in an aggressive pursuit of Cavs young point guard, Collin Sexton.
Here is one of the offers they've supposedly made available:
Obi Toppin, Kevin Knox, and one of New York’s 2021 first rounders...
Toppin and Knox have been thought of as major assets for the Knicks. So the fact that both players have been included in a package for Sexton really says a lot about how much they value the star.
Despite their 22-50 record this past season, Collin did show flashes of his potential, averaging 24.3 points, 4.4 assists, and 3.1 rebounds per game on 47.5% shooting. But that play also coincided with reports that Sexton was having issues within the locker room, perhaps indicating some deeper problems.
Whatever the case, it seems the Knicks are more than willing to take the risk -- even if it means giving up their own young prospects in return.
