One potential addition for the Knicks is 33-year veteran Gorgui Dieng, who spent the previous season with the San Antonio Spurs. Dieng participated in 31 games as a primary center, averaging 11.5 minutes and 3.9 points per game. Additionally, he is averaging 3.5 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 0.5 blocks per game.
However, considering Dieng’s age and primary role as a center, he may not be the ideal option for the Knicks. With Mitchell Robinson and Isaiah Hartenstein already on the roster, Jones Jr. appears to be a more efficient pick for the Knicks in terms of meeting their backup forward needs.
