With the knowledge that they are just a single dynamic player away from true championship contention, the Knicks could opt to strategically wait until the trade expires. This approach ensures they acquire a fit and healthy superstar rather than risk an early injury after a premature deal.
The Knicks’ association with top-tier players like Joel Embiid, Damian Lillard, James Harden and Donovan Mitchell has been lively. The aspiration? To sign a high caliber scoring big man rather than just a shooter. Embiid appears to be the perfect piece of the puzzle and rumors suggest he may be looking for an escape route from Philadelphia given their stagnant offseason.
