On Wednesday, the Milwaukee Bucks made a seismic move by acquiring seven-time All-Star Damian Lillard, causing ripples of surprise throughout the NBA.
While this major trade likely dashed any hopes the Knicks had of snagging Bucks’ superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo, it did create an opportunity for another All-Star to potentially make his way to the Big Apple.
In the multi-team trade involving Lillard, two-time All-Star Jrue Holiday was traded to the Portland Trail Blazers.
However, reports suggest that the Blazers plan to redirect Holiday to a different team.
As per ESPN’s Zach Lowe, the Knicks and the Indiana Pacers are anticipated to show “some level of interest” in acquiring Holiday.
Lowe also includes the Miami Heat, Philadelphia 76ers, and Los Angeles Clippers as teams that could be fitting destinations for Holiday.
