The expectation is growing for the next Draft in which the Knicks are called to the eighth choice. The New York targets, however, could be chosen before the Knicks. For this reason, as Marc Berman of the New York Post reports, the Knicks could try to trade α few spots in the Δraft.
In this sense, the Knicks’ target would become Tyrese Maxey as explained by Marc Berman:
“The Knicks would like Ball and Wiseman, two highly regarded players. For the eighth pick the Knicks held internal talks to trade with a team in the No. 12-15 to get a young player in his rookie contract. One player who has been on the radar of the Knicks is Tyrese Maxey.”
