Now that NBA free agency is officially underway, one of the most intriguing teams to follow is the New York Knicks. The biggest question fans want to know is if Carmelo Anthony will return to the Big Apple. Even if Melo returns, the Knicks have major holes to fill. Here are 5 moves New York should consider making throughout the offseason.
If there was a “bold prediction” category, this move would belong there. However, this move makes sense for both teams and would bring a young, athletic rim protector in Ibaka over to New York.
This has potential to be a low-risk, high-reward signing. The former second overall pick is still only 25 years old. He was put in a tough spot in Indiana but has shown potential. His ability to play both guard positions, as well as small forward should be enticing to the Knicks.
At 37 years old, Carter still has some gas left in the tank. With a Knicks second unit that struggled mightily in 2013-14, Carter would make for a great fit to come off the bench.
This rumor has been out there for a little while now. The connections are obvious with Phil Jackson, Derek Fisher and the triangle-offense. If New York is able to convince Melo to return, this is a situation Gasol has to consider.
Retaining Anthony may not lead New York to a championship, but it is their best option. With a lack of draft picks throughout the near future, the Knicks need a superstar to build around, and Melo is the most realistic option.
