Knicks Rumors: Isaiah Stewart Key Piece Of The Rotation

The Knicks must definitely acquire a center in the next draft. Among the names that are linked to New York there is also that of Isaiah Stewart.

Stewart is a powerful player in both construction and strength, with an expanding offensive game and a clear value as an internal defender. On the other hand, however, Stewart struggles to score against the length and does not do the best job of defending the perimeter, and this could frighten the general managers.

Stewart is also a productive blocker at 2.1 per game, which suggests that he could help maintain an internal presence on defense when Robinson is on the ground.

Offensively, Stewart converted 77.4 percent of his 6.2 free throw attempts per game. He is also expanding his reach beyond the three-point line in his jump shot, which would do a lot to help him carve out an offensive role as an underpowered 5.

If Stewart could become a great marksman capable of defending the post and blocking shots, it would be easy for the New York Knicks to connect it as a key piece of rotation.
