Kevin Knox not available?

A deal for the 32-year-old Rose probably wouldn’t cost too much in assets. The Knicks have three lottery picks out of the rotation who are available — Kevin Knox, Frank Ntilikina and Dennis Smith Jr. — according to sources. Knox, however, probably wouldn’t be dealt for Rose. The Knicks also have the 2021 first-round pick they got from the Mavericks in the Kristaps Porzingis trade, but probably would be hesitant to deal that one because it could turn into a lottery pick.
With the Knicks back home following their four-game road trip — including the final two stops in Portland and Utah — Ntilikina was working out on the Garden court while still wearing a knee brace beforehand but didn’t get off the bench in Friday’s 102-81 win over Cleveland. “He’s getting there,” Tom Thibodeau said about Ntilikina before the game. “When you go through those things it takes some time. But he’s moving well in practice.”
Storyline: Frank Ntilikina Injury
It remains to be seen how Thibodeau will use Ntilikina after being eased back in, but first the French combo guard had to worry about getting his conditioning back. “There was a progression to his comeback,” Thibodeau said. “He’s gotten some contact on this trip. We’ve had an opportunity to get some practices in. Even in situations in which we can get work in three-on-three with some of the guys that haven’t played big minutes, we try to take advantage of that as well. So he has gotten some contact, but conditioning-wise, probably not quite ready yet.”
