What should the Knicks do to acquire Mitchell in 2025?

The Knicks are determined to make their roster as championship-ready as possible. After the 2024-25 season as it currently stands, they will have $142.86 million on their books to roll over to next year, all coming from their starters and four key reserves. Some changes will need to be made so the Knicks can position themselves to pursue Donovan Mitchell when the time comes.

For now, the executive rumors should be positive news for the Knicks and an important development for president Leon Rose to watch. If New York and Cleveland both bottom out in this year’s playoffs, the stage would be set for Mitchell to leave and the Knicks to move on.
