Knicks third star may be RJ Barrett

Despite the remarkable season, the Knicks were overwhelmed in the playoffs due to a lack of scoring ability. This has led to speculation that a third superstar could complement the existing duo of Brunson and Julius Randle nicely.

Young shooting guard RJ Barrett, often mentioned in mock trades, could be a key factor in that equation. If Barrett makes a significant move during the 2023-24 season, the Knicks may not feel the need to force a change.

The Knicks’ offseason strategy emphasizes faith in the existing roster and the growth potential of their younger players. As market rumors continue to circulate, the Knicks appear focused on internal development, believing in the talent and chemistry they’ve built. Brunson’s words echo this sentiment, setting a tone of unity and optimism as the team looks to the future.
