NBA Rumors: Knicks Likely To Trade 3 Players

According to Fred Katz of The Athletic, the New York Knicks are most likely to trade Kemba Walker, Evan Fournier, and Alec Burks by the deadline. 

It has been a very disappointing season for the Knicks, as they have a 24-31 record and have only won two out of their last 10 games. With all of this, it is time for them to be sellers, and it is very easy to comprehend why.

Katz noted that out of the trio, Walker has the highest chance of being traded. Although he just signed a two-year, $18 million contract with them during this past offseason, it seems that his time in New York is ending. In 33 games, he has averaged 11.6 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 3.5 assists. He could be a good addition to a team in need of a boost. 

Like Walker, Fournier is in his first season with the Knicks, too. In 53 games this season, he has averaged 14.2 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 1.8 assists. There should be a good amount of interest in him around the league. He is not only capable of playing shooting guard but also can be utilized as a small forward if needed. 

Burks is also having another decent campaign with the Knicks. In 54 games, he is averaging 11.1 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 2.5 assists. He may work best as a role player if traded, but he certainly is a respectable one to have.
