With the 2020 NBA Draft coming up and the moratorium on trades coming to an end, we talked to a few teams about what the Knicks would need to give up to move up in the draft to one of the top two spots… Here are their thoughts: EXEC 1: “I think the Knicks would have to include Mitchell Robinson, No. 8 and probably an unprotected future 1st to get up there. If you’re talking about the No. 1 pick, they probably have to take back James Johnson’s deal as well or something like that. If you’re talking about the No. 2 pick, they’d probably need to take back Andrew Wiggins and facilitate a veteran going to the Warriors from a third team.”
Storyline: Mitchell Robinson Trade?
“I think the Knicks have to be open to a lot of different things,’’ Fizdale said. “Would he be a great fit for them? Absolutely. I think he would fit those kids — Mitchell Robinson going to the rim, they get more spacing, more shooting. Absolutely, he would fit. The big stage. He doesn’t get sick [with COVID-19].” Nevertheless, Fizdale added: “For him, where he is at his career, I don’t think it’s a good fit for him and what he’s trying to do.’’
Storyline: Chris Paul Trade?
Okoro has been linked to the Knicks, who will pick at 8 unless they trade up, and he said he sees himself fitting in with a young roster that includes R.J Barrett and Mitchell Robinson. “I know the Knicks have a great organization, they have a lot of young players right now,” Okoro said. “Possibly playing with the Knicks would be a great opportunity for me. I know that I could come into the team and play a role that the coach needs me to play. I know that they have a new coach in Tom Thibodeau and he’s a very defensive-minded coach. I feel like me coming it would be a great opportunity.”
Haliburton said he thinks he’d enjoy playing in the Big Apple. “That’s doesn’t really worry me or concern me in any way,” he said. “I’m a basketball player, so I’ll play basketball wherever that is.” He is already knowledgeable about the Knicks roster and likes the idea of playing with young talents like R.J. Barrett and Mitchell Robinson. “I think they got a great young core,” he said. “It’s definitely an up-and-coming team in the NBA. I see myself fitting there whatever spot that is.”
