The Knicks expected to get scoring depth in the backcourt at the trade deadline

With the trade deadline just days away, it’s officially peak trade season. For the New York Knicks, they are expected to be active this year with the team having its best 50-game start in over a decade.

They have been linked to a plethora of prospects, most notably guards Malcolm Brogdon and Dejounte Murray. Bleacher Report predicted this week that the Knicks will make another breakout acquisition and get Murray from the Atlanta Hawks to improve their backcourt depth.

“In theory, there is still a lot of depth in the backcourt behind Jalen Brunson, Donte DiVincenzo, and Josh Hart, but the latter two can also play on the wing. Neither was [Immanuel] Quickley on the ball,” said Bleacher Report’s Andy Bailey.

“Murray can replace him, and Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau may be able to help him rediscover the defensive ability that helped make him an All-Star with the San Antonio Spurs.”
