According to Ian Begley of SNY, Knicks president Leon Rose would like to add a big who can space the floor this offseason.
To be clear, this is in addition to a lead guard that can shoot such as LaMelo Ball for example. And while Begley notes that Julius Randle isn't a lock to be traded, he does see it as a viable possibility. And that makes sense, as Randle is a poor shooter and doesn't mesh well with RJ Barrett. In fact, the Knicks were outscored by seven points per 100 possessions with those two on the floor. This also makes the Knicks' rumored interest in Christian Wood even more legit.
