Some Trade Chatter Surrounding the New York Knicks

The New York Knicks are on everyone's radar when it comes to making moves this off season. The team is trying to get back to mediocrity in the NBA, and there's been a ton of talk surrounding the team acquiring a big name.

This time around it's what's going out the door that's the focus. 

According to Marc Berman of the New York Post, the Orlando Magic have shown interest in Dennis Smith Jr, and according to his source, it could work out to a bigger deal involving the team's first round picks.

In Smith, the 9th-overall pick from 2017 had an off year in New York last season, however, most of the team did, so you can't blame Smith Jr for that. He finished the year averaging 5.5 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.9 assists in a limited role.

Here's what Berman had to say about the potential deal:

According to two league sources, the Knicks are seriously mulling trading back in the Nov. 18 draft unless big man James Wiseman or point guard LaMelo Ball fall back to the eighth spot. Orlando has shown interest in Dennis Smith Jr., so a bigger deal could work with the Magic if they swap the No. 8 and No. 15 slots.
