The Knicks are expected to be among the teams to pursue Kings forward/center Richaun Holmes in free agency this offseason, sources told Hoopswire.
Holmes, 27, is 6-foot-10 and coming off a career season in Sacramento, compiling averages of 14.2 points and 8.3 rebounds in 60 games, shooting early 64 percent from the floor.
Holmes will be an unrestricted free agent and has also been linked to the Spurs, Bulls and Pacers. A return to the Kings is also viewed as a possibility as Sacramento aims to build some continuity.
More from the NBA
- Along with Holmes, the Knicks have been mentioned as a possible destination for Lakers point guard Dennis Schroder. The Heat could be another possible suitor, one executive told Evan Massey of NBA Analysis Network. “I’ve been hearing a ton of Schroder to New York talks, but I’m not sold that will end up happening,” the exec said. “Miami is another team to keep a close eye on. They are going to want an upgrade in the backcourt and Schroder seems like a perfect fit if the two sides can agree on price.”
- Massey also hears that multiple teams are expected to pursue Pacers center Myles Turner via trade. The Hornets, Knicks, Celtics and Lakers are among those with an interest in Turner, Massey wrote.
- In case you missed it, Suns guard Chris Paul could turn down his $44 million player option to seek a multiyear deal this summer. It would be a similar move to the one made by the Hornets’ Gordon Hayward last offseason. Check out the full story here on Hoopswire.
