NBA Rumors: Knicks Interested In 3 Players

The New York Knicks are looking to make some acquisitions. At this time, they are reportedly interested in Atlanta Hawks forward Cam Reddish, Indiana Pacers center Myles Turner, and Dallas Mavericks point guard Jalen Brunson. 

It's clear that the Knicks want to be a playoff team this year. Yet, it certainly is possible that they won't be if they keep playing this way. At this juncture of the campaign, they sport a 21-21 record and are 11th place in the Eastern Conference. Adding at least one of these three players would be very good for them.

Reddish is currently sidelined with an ankle injury, but the 22-year-old could fit in nicely with the Knicks. In 34 games this season with the Hawks, he has averaged 11.9 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 1.1 assists. It has been reported that the Hawks are shopping him, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him moved to the Knicks. 

Turner has been linked to the Knicks since the summer, and this rumor will just not go away. Turner has expressed interest in playing there, and now New York seems to feel the same way. With the Pacers set to embark on a full-on rebuild, Turner will likely be moved - whether it's to the Knicks or elsewhere. In 41 games this season, he has averaged 13.0 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 1.1 assists. 

Brunson has been having a very strong season with the Dallas Mavericks thus far. In 40 games, he is on the verge of setting career-highs in three major categories if he keeps playing at this pace. On the year, he's averaging 16.0 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 5.6 assists per contest.
