NBA Rumors: Knicks Linked To Another Star Point Guard


The New York Knicks have a definitive goal this offseason of bringing in a high-end point guard to run their offense. It was a trouble spot for them all season. Names like free agents Jalen Brunson and Tyus Jones along with the Minnesota Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell have come up, and now we can add a new one to the list. 

According to Jake Fischer of Bleacher Report, the Knicks are now linked to the Indiana Pacers' Malcolm Brogdon. 

Ideally, says Fischer, the Knicks have interest in moving up in the draft to nab Jaden Ivey. But if they can't pull that off—and it seems unlikely—they'll turn to free agent and/or trade targets. 

Brunson is clearly their top choice, but if it becomes apparent that they cannot lure the Dallas Mavericks' breakout guard to New York, Fischer writes, "Brogdon has been mentioned as one of several potential backup options for the Knicks to plug their hole at starting point guard."

Brogdon is signed through the next two seasons, and becomes a free agent in 2025. He averaged 19.1 points and 5.9 assists in his 3rd year with the Pacers this season, though his 3-point shooting cratered to a career-low 31%.
