Analyst says NBA team ‘transformed’ after key trade

Many people were excited to see what OG Anunoby could do for the New York Knicks when he was traded to the team a few weeks ago.

As noted by Fred Katz, the Knicks have gone 11-2 since acquiring Anunoby.

Things were looking good for the team on Thursday night as the Knicks defeated the defending champion Denver Nuggets.

As Katz put it, in addition to saying the team has “transformed” since the trade, he wrote, “It’s hard to see them as anything other than a team on the rise.”

They are definitely a team on the rise and have really been for some time.

Jalen Brunson added a huge boost of energy and efficiency when he arrived on the team last season.

Donte DiVincenzo and Josh Hart also helped the team a lot.

Of course, Anunoby’s impact cannot be discounted and he quickly made a name for himself in New York.

Through his first 13 games with the Knicks, Anunoby averaged 15.4 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.8 steals.

During Thursday’s win over the Nuggets, he totaled 26 points and 6 steals.

The offense in New York is very strong and the defense has improved a lot since Anunoby joined the team.
