The Knicks are reportedly set on acquiring "a big man who can shoot" this offseason.
New York has three draft picks, so they could address this via the draft, but Knicks writer Ian Begley speculates that they could pursue guys like Christian Wood, Danilo Gallinari, Davis Bertans or even Carmelo Anthony. The Knicks' only player shooting above 37% from deep last year was Marcus Morris, who was traded to the Clippers, and they've been open about the need for more court-spacing to help RJ Barrett. Bobby Portis was reasonably effective at 35.8% from deep, but if the Knicks get a reasonable trade offer for Julius Randle (27.7%) it seems like they'd jump at the opportunity. Jun 11 10:44 am (EST)
