The Knicks have been linked with Anunoby a number of times this offseason. Despite Toronto’s demand for a significant haul in return, New York could be enticed by the 26-year-old striker.
The Knicks could tap young guard Immanuel Quickley, who could become a starting point guard.
Quickley, making $4.17 million next season, could soon be in line for a potentially huge payday. A similar deal could be offered to Anunoby, earning the Knicks a better defender and regular starter.
The acquisition of Anunoby could significantly elevate the Knicks, especially considering his career defensive rating of 109.6. The team lacked defensive toughness and playoff scoring last year, which Anunoby could help improve.
