New York Knicks has a busy off season coming this year as a number of players come out of contract and they have 2 first round draft picks this year , we break down the players and picks on this team and what is Stockton’s to keep or trade .
PG : Moado Lo , Ryan Boatright , Chris Tang
Lo hasn’t had a single offer from any Gm’s in the league but that’s okay Stockton is happy to keep him and will try and shift him to sg come next season , Lo has had a break out season and was motivated by Boston’s comment that he was a bust. Boatright went out of Sacramento for a late second round pick and saw his time increased and even started for the knicks I’m sure he will be back .
SG/SF : Justin Anderson , Wesley Saunders, Joesph Young , TJ Warren and Julian Washburn
The Knicks scored Anderson in a trade with Orlando that also brought in Orlando’s first round pick this year so eyes will be on what happens with that pick, Anderson’s name came up in a few trades but nothing happened with two teams trying to secure his services .
Young and Warren have one year contracts next year and warren can light it off from the bench as seen in a number of games while Washburn and Saunders are both looking for new homes .
CE/PF : Josh Davis , Roy hibbert , Isiah hartenstein , Tacko Fall , Giannis and Domantas Sabonis
The Knicks gm chased Josh Davis for along time And finally got him . They love his rebounding and defence but he has shown that in the Knicks team he can score as well posting career high in ppg and it’s certain that Stockton will bring him back with a pay rise to boot . Sabonis is another favourite of stocktons and will also come back to New York unless someone offers him a mad contract this year . Giannis is rumoured to be verballed while hibbert is expiring and won’t come back , hartenstein and Fall never got much time with Fall rumoured to be on the way out .
The Draft Picks
The Knicks own their own first round pick this season and won’t trade it no matter what while they also own Orlando’s first this year and that’s slotted to be around 9-12 this year but both depend on how the lotto balls fall So Stockton will have his fingers crossed. A few offers have been received from a number of gms for Orlando’s pick but the Knicks will wait until the draft before deciding.
The Knicks should have around $20 million to spend and they have already researched who to target but that will depends on who they draft and how it go’s with the player agents this year and with the Knicks needing a point guard that will be their priority this year .
