The New York Knicks closely monitor Joel Embiid’s situation amid Philadelphia’s unfolding James Harden drama. This places them in the same boat as the other 28 teams without Embiid on their roster.

Despite the Knicks’ interest, sources suggest that Embiid is firmly committed to the 76ers and their pursuit of victory in Philadelphia. There is no indication that he has expressed a desire for a trade, and there is no imminent sense of a trade request.

Furthermore, the Sixers’ decision-makers seem unswayed by the proposed package that the Knicks are rumored to be preparing for Embiid.

New York is said to be ready to present a combination of players and draft picks, potentially including Julius Randle, RJ Barrett, Mitchell Robinson, Evan Fournier, and two to three of the Knicks’ first-round picks as part of the deal for the reigning MVP.
