New York Knicks are really on a roll this season being in the six best teams of the Eastern Conference for the first part of the season with an 18-17 record.

According to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, the Knicks will possibly lure an all-star caliber player the next 12 months, with the team on course to have postseason presence.

Windhorst explained in his podcast that the Knicks will have the draft pieces and the cap space to trade or sign an All-Star player.

The NBA analyst cited several reasons that players would want to join the Knicks including the team’s big market status and president Leon Rose’s success as an agent, before joining the team.

Also, the franchise’s recent success could definitely be a deciding factor if it continues to be a thing throughout the 2020/21 season.

Windhorst avoided referring any names, however the Knicks’ stature will definitely change, if the franchise continues to establish a winning culture.
