The New York Knicks might be looking to get younger at the forward position with Rondae Hollis-Jefferson.
One of the most interesting things to keep an eye on prior to the trade deadline is whether or not the New York Knicks are buyers or sellers.
If the Knicks end up selling a lot of veteran players, it would be a sign that they won’t be attempting to make a playoff run this season. If they add some veterans, they’ll be in all for a run.
One NBA source said the Knicks inquired about the Nets’ 23-year-old defensive forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, but Brooklyn asked for a first-rounder. That the Knicks’ pick is looking more like a lottery selection makes it virtually untouchable.
As you can see above, Berman reported that the Nets want the Knicks’ first round pick, since they traded their 2018 first round pick to the Boston Celtics, who ended up using it to acquire Kyrie Irving. That is obviously not going to happen.
The 23 year-old Hollis-Jefferson is a small forward who’s averaging 14 points and 6.5 rebounds per game this season. He would be a nice addition, but not for a first round pick.
