While teams like the Detroit Pistons and the Oklahoma City Thunder had great drafts the Knicks went in the opposite direction. A team in desperate need to find another piece to go alongside RJ Barret failed to do so. 

The Knicks traded their No. 11 pick for other picks in the future. Below is a breakdown on what the trade looks like. 

The Knicks are looking to stack up on draft assets to try and create cap space for a star player. As of right now the rumor is they want to make a run at Dallas Mavericks guard Jalen Brunson. Brunson had a good playoff run especially while their star Luka Doncic was hurt in the first round of the playoffs. Brunson would be a great pickup but the real question is, is he worth all the trouble? 

Kemba Walker was included in the trade and landed in Detroit. He won’t stay long as he will work on a buyout to become a free agent this summer. Starting somewhere fresh will be good for Walker who can still play at a high level when healthy and playing in the right system.

Knicks fans were not happy about what their front office did last night.
