Report: Knicks contemplating making move for ‘star’

As of right now, the New York Knicks have a pretty good thing going. But is that good thing a true contender?Jalen Brunson slaps hands with Mitchell Robinson

Some people have their doubts, and that group may include the Knicks themselves. So they may be looking to shake up the roster before the February trade deadline, per Shams Charania of The Athletic.

“They are monitoring the marketplace,” Charania said during his regular appearance on FanDuel TV’s Run It Back. “They want to see if there’s a star player that’s available.”

As currently constructed, again, the Knicks have some pieces, starting with point guard Jalen Brunson. Both power forward Julius Randle and forward/guard RJ Barrett also have their moments. But neither is likely to garner the Knicks an opposing team’s str, unless perhaps, that player is along the lines of available Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine.

And by all accounts, LaVine’s large contract isn’t exactly on the Knicks’ radar.

So we will have to wait and see if the Knicks can actually pull off a deal — or if they’re just dreaming of one.
