Washington’s interest in Grimes is noteworthy for several reasons. One of them? The Knicks have Wizards big man Daniel Gafford on their radar, sources confirm.
The interest in Gafford comes as New York deals with injuries to Isaiah Hartenstein and Mitchell Robinson. Earlier this month, the Knicks were optimistic that Robinson could return before the end of the regular season. Hartenstein missed two games with a left Achilles tendon injury. He played with a similar ailment last season. As you would expect, there is some concern about Hartenstein’s health and availability going forward.
Hence the interest in the 25-year-old Gafford. Gafford is averaging 10 points, seven rebounds, two blocks, and one steal per game in 38 games as a starter for the Wizards.
