The New York Knicks have already pulled off what could be one of the biggest trades in the NBA this season, acquiring OG Anunoby from the Toronto Raptors. It’s a deal that both teams have benefited from as the Knicks are 4-0 since then and the Raptors are 3-1 with Immanuel Quickley and RJ Barrett thriving in their new roles.
While Toronto is heading into a small rebuild with a new core, New York is looking to solidify its status as a top team in the Eastern Conference. The acquisition of Anunoby helped in this process, but many NBA analysts believe it was only the first step in their plan.
By not including any first-round picks, the Knicks retained enough valuable assets to make other deals soon. What could be their next move? NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN outlined what their potential plans could be.
You should pay attention to what Wojnarowski reports for the Knicks because he is a CAA client. CAA has deep roots within the organization, as team president Leon Rose was a high-level agent there and remains well-connected within the league.
According to Wojnarowski, via Big Knicks Energy on X , the first step will be to make another addition before the deadline. Anunoby, Precious Achiuwa and Malachi Flynn can all be serviceable pieces, but the team is looking for another shot creator.
