Report: New York Knicks Are 'Most Aggressive' Collin Sexton Suitor

The Knicks are ready to capitalize on their first playoff appearance since 2013 and have set their sites on Cavaliers guard Collin Sexton. According to sports analyst Evan Dammarell, New York's proposed deal for the 22-year-old is centered around Obi Toppin, Kevin Knox and one of their first-round picks in the upcoming draft.

The Athletic's Shams Charania is also reporting that New York is the "most aggressive" suitor for Sexton, as they are focused on augmenting their point guard position.

Despite having home court in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs, the Knicks were gentlemen swept by Trae Young and the Hawks. This is in large part due to their myopic offensive schemes; outside of Derrick Rose and Julius Randle, New York is bereft of playmakers — not to mention Randle struggles mightily in the postseason.

Sexton, who averaged 24.3 points and 4.4 assists this season, would add a much-needed boost to New York's predictable offence. Moreover, his indefatigable presence on defence, as well as his palpable competitive fervor, would bold well with Tom Thibodeau and his hard-nosed coaching style.

The writing appears to be on the wall for Sexton, as reports have circulated positing that he is "very available." Another possible destination for the former All-Rookie is Portland, as he is "on their radar, if needed."
