New York Knicks

This summer will determine whether this ranking is far too high or laughably low. For the time being, that means it ought to be just right.
The’Bockers are a blank canvas. The Kristaps Porzingis deadline deal erased most of long-term obligations. Their greatest guaranteed salary for next season is Frank Ntilikina’s $4.9 million. No dream is too large for the Knicks right now. As Bleacher Report’s Dan Favale broke down, it is not impossible to find a situation where Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and Anthony Davis all call Madison Square Garden home next year.
Is it possible? Not in the least. But when the Knicks have all their built-in market advantages, and plenty of cap room and a decent shot at securing the No. 1 choice, that is an army of assets most clubs would struggle to match.
Obviously, there’s also an underground flooring.
Cap distance might not mean Irving or Durant. Perhaps It’s Kemba Walker and Khris Middleton. Maybe it’s not any one. Given the revamped lottery chances, the Knicks may end up drafting fifth or fourth. So, instead of Zion Williamson (and a potential route to Davis), possibly the draft haul is just Cam Reddish or even Jarrett Culver.
New York already has some childhood in place, although its possible remains in flux. While Mitchell Robinson appears ahead of schedule and Allonzo Trier was a huge surprise, Kevin Knox looks predictably raw. Additionally, Dennis Smith Jr. is far from a sure thing, also Ntilikina’s prognosis is cloudy at best.
