After this season, the Knicks will want to take the next step forward. To do this, it will be necessary to reinforce the roster with thick players like DeMar DeRozan.
Zach Buckley of Bleacher Report once again speculated that the Knicks could close a deal for DeRozan. He also included what a potential commercial package might include.
Here’s what the swap might look like:
Knicks Receive: DeMar DeRozan and Alex Caruso
Bulls receive: RJ Barrett, Obi Toppin and Isaiah Hartenstein
It would be a big win for the Knicks. Barrett had major problems being consistent for New York, especially in the playoffs. Neither Toppin nor Hartenstein are talents that should force the Knicks into going through this type of deal.
