But what's the deal with these Knicks and Biyombo rumors? To be honest, I think it very well could be agent posturing. Biyombo is a lottery talent. He's a relative unknown with an equally unknown agent (Igor Crespo) who has his first NBA lottery ticket in his hands.
Are the Knicks interested in Biyombo? Of course they are. But they are not the only team who could use his services. Every team needs a defensive-minded talent despite his lack of polished offensive skills.
How can the Knicks get into a position to move up to where Biyombo will be, which is most certainly in the lottery?
It's hard to imagine that they can.
Knicks fans hope he's around at 17 for sure, but the odds of that happening seem extremely low.
