The New York Knicks may not play a competitive basketball game until late December or early January. It is impossible to predict what the 2020-21 program will look like when the league is still finalizing plans for the recovery of the current season.

But every time the Knicks return to the field, what we know is that their lineup and bench will look different than they did in the past campaign when they finished with one of the worst records in the NBA.

As a product of their poor comedy, New York has the sixth best odds for the upcoming draft lottery in August. They are reportedly interested in adding a guiding guard to their training with LaMelo Ball at the top of their scoreboard.

If the ping pong balls fall in favor of the Knicks or Leon Rose orchestrates an agreement to ensure the best LaMelo Ball prospect, what will the rest of the formation be like next season?

It seems that the Knicks are trying to add veteran pieces to a developing list that will most likely be led by Tom Thibodeau. With several core pieces in place, including Ball’s potential, there may be more bench space than the initial training for roster supplements.
