Much like Dejounte Murray, Malcolm Brogdon could be an addition that the New York Knicks decide to pursue before the 2024 NBA trade deadline.
Although he won the 2016-17 Rookie of the Year award and the 2022-23 Sixth Man of the Year award, Brogdon has never received the acclaim he deserves. At 6’4″, he’s a sizable guard, an excellent three-point shooter and a willing passer who averaged a career-high 7.1 assists per game in 2019-20 with Indiana Pacers.
Despite his talent, Malcolm Brogdon bounces strangely. The Milwaukee Bucks selected him in the second round in 2016, but he was involved in a sign-and-trade in the summer of 2019, largely because they felt the offer sheet he signed with Indiana was simply too much to allow them to continue to build a contender.
Ultimately, Brogdon is a good player who had the misfortune of playing for teams that were able to upgrade the lead guard position, at his expense. Injuries also played a factor, as he never played more than 75 games in his rookie season. In fact, that was the only season in which he reached the 70-game mark.
