Will the New York Knicks trade Willy Hernangomez before this year’s deadline?
A report came out on Tuesday that New York Knicks’ center Willy Hernangomez is drawing the most attention of any player on the team right now when it comes to other teams approaching the Knicks in regards to a potential trade.
Stefan Bondy of the New York Post is reporting that the Utah Jazz are one of the teams are interested in trading for Hernangomez.
Regardless, Hernangomez has received the most attention of New York’s centers from potential trade partners, according to sources. One team to show interest is the Utah Jazz.
Hernangomez has made it clear that he’s not sure what his future holds and that he would just like to play more basketball instead of being stuck behind Kyle O’Quinn.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen,” Hernangomez said. “The trade deadline is coming. Like I’ve said a couple times, I’m 23, I’m hungry. I want to play. Whatever happens, I’m ready for it.”
If the Knicks did work out a trade with the Jazz for Hernangomez, I’m not sure if guys like Derrick Favors and Alec Burks would be enough. Right now those are the only two players that I’ve heard could possibly be traded by Utah.
