Trade Rumors: The Knicks are also looking for an experienced guard

As the NBA trade deadline approaches on February 8, Portland Trail Blazers guard Malcolm Brogdon is attracting interest from several teams. The Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks and Houston Rockets are among the top clubs evaluating players in the top tier of point guards, and Brogdon is seen as a potential target.

While the Lakers may not have strong interest in Brogdon, considering him, at best, a lateral move by D’Angelo Russell, the Rockets and Knicks are reportedly looking at Brogdon as someone who can actually run the offense second unit. Jalen Brunson’s impressive performance for the Knicks and Fred VanVleet’s contributions for the Rockets were notable, but both teams could see Brogdon as an additional asset to bolster their rosters.
