The New York Knicks have been linked as one of the teams expected to pursue Davis Bertans in free agency. It makes perfect sense considering it’s one of the deadliest shooters on the market.
The acquisition of Bertans could prove costly from both a roof and asset standpoint, which could give a team like the Knicks a break from trying to take him down. NBC Washington reported earlier this week that several teams are preparing signing and swap offers for Bertans. Some of these teams have reportedly crossed the line, so they would need to make a trade to facilitate a deal. The 28-year-old is expected to apply for a contract in the $ 15 million annual salary range.
For a team that needs sharp footage and spacing, Bertans is the perfect solution. For the right price, the Knicks should definitely be engaged in discussions to bring a new Latvian shooter to Garden. He’d make a fun inside-out combo with Mitchell Robinson.
