Knicks, possible trade with Fournier and two role players

The New York Knicks tried to trade Evan Fournier at the trade deadline for two position players who then helped the Los Angeles Lakers reach the NBA Western Conference Finals.

According to Yahoo Sports’ Jake Fischer, the Knicks were among the few teams that inquired about Malik Beasley, formerly of the Utah Jazz.

“The Knicks were another team that called for Beasley, sources said, attempting to land Beasley and Jarred Vanderbilt in a deal that would have sent Evan Fournier out. New York also had their eye on Beasley in 2020 when he was a limited free agent, and that was before Gersson Rosas, then president of the Minnesota Timberwolves who awarded Beasley a four-year, $60 million deal, joined the Knicks as a senior basketball adviser”, Fisher wrote.
