Even if the New York Knicks elect not to make some big, splashy move ahead of the NBA trade deadline, there’s at least one position on the roster they should be solidifying. Namely, the point guard spot, where things have been anything but stable this season.
It has been clear for a while now that the Kemba Walker experiment has failed. He may have shown signs of life after his early-season benching, but now the former All-Star has failed to play more than 20 minutes in four of his last five games. And he hasn’t hit double-figure scoring since January 18.
Meanwhile, Derrick Rose is still out of commission, Alec Burks is, objectively, not a point guard and Immanuel Quickley — for all the good that he does — may not be one, either.
Although big names like De’Aaron Fox and Ben Simmons have been floated as trade targets. Knicks insider Marc Berman just pitched a one-time Brooklyn Net and former 20-point scorer as an option.
