One of the most pressing questions for the Knicks under new team president Leon Rose is: What do you do at point guard?
Rose inherits Frank Ntilikina, Elfrid Payton and Dennis Smith Jr. as his lead guards, along with two-way player Kadeem Allen. Former Knicks head coach David Fizdale said last week that he thought it was important for New York to find a point guard who was a threat from the perimeter. Others currently in the organization share those thoughts.
The Knicks have a team option on Payton for next season, and have Ntilikina and Smith under contract for next season. The club is projected to have three draft picks in the Top 36 picks of the 2020 NBA Draft, so they could target a point guard there.
