This summer will determine whether this standing is way too high or laughably low. For the time being, that means it should be just perfect.
The’Bockers are nearly a blank canvas. The Kristaps Porzingis deadline bargain erased most of long-term commitments. Their greatest guaranteed salary for next season is Frank Ntilikina’s $4.9 million. No dream is too large for the Knicks right now. As Bleacher Report’s Dan Favale broke down, it’s not impossible to discover a scenario in which Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and Anthony Davis all call Madison Square Garden home next year.
Is it possible? Not in the least. However, if the Knicks have all their built-in market advantages, plus plenty of cap room and a decent shot at securing the No. 1 choice, that’s an army of resources many clubs would struggle to match.
There’s also an floor to consider.
Cap distance may not imply Irving or Durant. Maybe it’s Kemba Walker and Khris Middleton. Perhaps it’s no one. Considering that the revamped lottery odds, the Knicks might end up drafting fourth or fifth. So, instead of Zion Williamson (along with a possible path to Davis), possibly the draft haul is just Cam Reddish or even Jarrett Culver.
New York already has some youth set up, although its potential is in flux. While Mitchell Robinson looks before schedule and Allonzo Trier has been a huge surprise, Kevin Knox looks predictably raw. Moreover, Dennis Smith Jr. is far from a sure thing, also Ntilikina’s outlook is cloudy at best.
