The Knicks‘ strong season-ending against the Heat could attract the attention of some All-Stars, especially those who are currently unhappy. We have already mentioned that Embiid could decide to leave the Sixers. An attractive name but objectively it seems complicated that he can leave Philadelphia.
Rather, one of the names the Knicks are following is Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. The Thunder are a team still under construction and the superstar could therefore decide to leave Oklahoma City due to the great desire to win that he has. The Thunder are in a stalemate, the Knicks instead are re-emerging.
It’s not easy for Sam Presti to decide to swap Gilgeous-Alexander, but the player’s will could be decisive.
