It's no secret the Knicks are still in rebuilding mode this season. But next season -- the offseason in particular -- they are looking to make a big leap from bottom of the barrel team in the East, to a high-powered contender.
How? Taking advantage of a stout free-agent market.
Knicks C Enes Kanter may be gearing up for this season, but he does have his mind on future free agency that could see a couple All-Stars as new teammates by the end of it. It was reported earlier that Celtics PG Kyrie Irving and Timberwolves G Jimmy Butler have talked about teaming up together in the NBA, and New York could be that destination in 2019 when they both hit free agency.
