The New York Knicks are continuing their search for potential additions before next season officially commences, but they stand uninterested in three of the notable free-agents remaining.
Sources told Marc Berman of the New York Post that Carmelo Anthony, Blake Griffin and LaMarcus Aldridge don’t appeal to the Knicks, not seeing them as “a good fit at the moment” within their lineup.
Though there were offseason murmurs of a probable reunion with Anthony, it turned out that the Knicks are more focused on building a solid reputation after their rough postseason record from the previous years.
Anthony is off from a 2021-2022 campaign with the Lakers, averaging a productive 13.3 points and 4.2 boards in 69 occasions. His offensive contribution looks solid despite being at age 37 and in the twilight of his hall of fame career.
Though they are now also on the shell of their former selves, Griffin and Aldridge look ideal to be tapped on as mentors from the sidelines and occasional contributors. Both played for the Brooklyn Nets last campaign, wherein Griffin tallied 6.4 points and 4.1 rebounds in 56 games, while Aldridge got 12.9 points and 5.5 rebounds in 47 occasions.
The Knicks have two more roster spots available, and the market remains open for them to locate prospects. As such, the training camp late in this month is slowly approaching and has to be considered on their ongoing hunt.
