It’s become clear the Knicks aren’t willing to part with…

The New York Knicks are set to be active in the NBA Trade Deadline, having already engaged in a significant trade with the Toronto Raptors this season.

When in good health, the team has emerged as one of the league’s top contenders. While the starting lineup of Jalen Brunson, Donte DiVincenzo, OG Anunoby, Julius Randle, and Isaiah Hartenstein stands out as the most productive in the NBA, there are still areas that the Knicks could strengthen.When Brunson comes off the court, the team is lacking a shot creator to take his spot. That role used to belong to Immanuel Quickley, but he was traded to the Raptors, along with RJ Barrett, in the deal for Anunoby, Precious Achiuwa and Malachi Flynn.

It would behoove New York to add a shot creator ahead of the deadline. They have been connected to a few, such as Malcolm Brogdon, Jordan Clarkson and Dejounte Murray. However, the asking price has been very high to this point. The team has also been connected to Bruce Brown, who landed with the Raptors in the Pascal Siakam blockbuster.The Knicks certainly have the draft capital to get a deal done and a great trade chip in Evan Fournier’s contract. However, the sweetener everyone has mentioned is shooting guard Quentin Grimes.
