Knicks, objectives revealed before the trade deadline

The Knicks have performed well above expectations this season and are currently sixth in the Eastern Conference.

New York’s biggest need is probably a defense playmaker to complete Rose, especially since the Knicks’ primary assist man is Randle from the forward position.

Berman named Houston Rockets guard Victor Oladipo and New Orleans Pelicans guard Lonzo Ball as potential targets for the Knicks, as both would meet New York’s needs over another great like Aldridge, especially with center Mitchell Robinson on the point of returning from injury.
