The New York Knicks appear to be in rebuild mode under a new manager, but are reportedly interested in a huge contract playoff that turns 32 in November and comes with concerns about his shooting and how he will age his tough style of play. .
According to SNY’s Ian Begley, there is some belief that the Knicks would at least “take a look” at Russell Westbrook landing from the Houston Rockets in a potential trade.
Begley noted that Westbrook “saw New York as a welcome stop last summer when Oklahoma City was talking to teams about potential trade.”
First, concerns with Westbrook.
Assuming he exercises his 2022-23 player option, he is owed $ 132 million over the next three seasons. There are also some possible durability issues after playing just 57 games in 2019-20 for the Rockets.
Begley suggested that Houston may need to include another resource for the Knicks to hire that salary.
Westbrook can finally help the Knicks finally reach the playoffs.
