Knicks Rumors: the possible trade for Antetokounmpo

While Knicks fans are typically obsessed with Robinson, it would probably take him or RJ Barrett to make a serious offer. With Antetokounmpo already bringing rim protection and rebound on the table, New York should instead try to keep Barrett.

Randle would help compensate for part of the offense left by Antetokounmpo in power forward, and it would be only a matter of time before Robinson took the initial job from Brook Lopez.

Knox, a lottery pick in 2018, could better reach his potential under the leadership of Mike Budenholzer and the Bucks should ask Frank Ntilikina for the same reasons.

The Knicks have the sixth worst record in the NBA, which means they are looking forward to choosing the best project in 2020. Overall, it would be a good result for the Bucks.

New York would remain with a core of Antetokounmpo, Barrett, Ntilikina, Dennis Smith Jr., Bobby Portis, Taj Gibson and Elfrid Payton, with some roof space arriving in 2021. While the chance of getting a player like Antetokounmpo would be tempting, New York would be better off maintaining its first draft choice this year and trying to attract proven talent in 2021, this time with a young core and better collection.
