Some people with the Knicks are very high on Oladipo

One name thrown around as a possible addition to the Knicks is Indiana Pacers guard Victor Oladipo, according to SNY’s Ian Begley, who reported the following on Tuesday:

“Some people with the Knicks are very high on Oladipo, but I don’t know if the most important decision makers are high on Oladipo”.

Oladipo is under contract until 2020-21 and will be a free agent in the summer of 2021, meaning the Pacers could look to deal with the two-time All-Star in hopes of getting some value before it can potentially enter. in free agency.

The Knicks need to add talent and form a solid core to be built in the 1920s. RJ Barrett and Mitchell Robinson appear to be two of the main pieces, but it’s unclear who else on the roster is part of the solution.

Maybe Oladipo is an answer, but the Knicks have work to do outside the shooting guard. Having the eighth pick in the 2020 NBA draft should help, and the same goes for having a mountain of space available in future years.
