Although the New York Knicks struck out on this free agent class's top talent, they will have more opportunities to scoop up a star going forward. Chris Paul and Russell Westbrook were two elite point guards on the trade market, with the former possibly still available. The price may be too steep and the prize too old for the Knicks, but they won't have to wait long for another chance.
As part of Kevin Durant's signing with the Brooklyn Nets, New York's rival team sent the Golden State Warriors PG D'Angelo Russell, who was signed to a max deal coming off his first All-Star season. While the southpaw scorer will be useful filling in during Klay Thompson's absence, he's an awkward long-term fit, and is rumored to be on the trading block come December 15, when newly signed players can be dealt.
Should the Knicks look to trade for him when that time comes?
