Bryn Forbes of the San Antonio Spurs cheap option of the Knicks

Bryn Forbes could be a relatively cheap option for the Knicks to add shooting to the backcourt.

Playing in his fourth season with Spurs, Forbes has regressed a bit from a career season in 2018-19 which saw him pull 42.6% from center, good for 8th best league in the league. However, his perimeter accuracy of 40% of his career ranks 17th among active players. Even in a tough year, this guy can shoot.

Forbes has played most of his time on the shooting guard, but he can also play a small point and a small forward. Where he plays defense largely depends on where you can hide him.

By some advanced metrics, Forbes was one of the league’s worst defenders this year.

Signing the 27-year-old to a team deal would mean giving the Knicks much needed backcourt shooting, as well as a player who is used to playing a structured system with Gregg Popovich.
