Despite having Elfrid Payton, Frank Ntilikina, and Dennis Smith Jr. in their backcourt, rumors are circulating the New York Knicks are planning to search upgrades at the point guard position in the 2020 NBA offseason. In the past months, there are speculations that the Knicks would be targeting Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Chris Paul in the trade market. However, with his age, massive contract, and deteriorating performance, most people believe that trading for Paul doesn’t make much sense for the Knicks.
According to Michael Pina of SB Nation, adding Paul to their roster isn’t “ideal” for the Knicks. If they really want to improve their point guard position, Pina believes that the Knicks are better off targeting a younger floor general like Fred VanVleet of the Toronto Raptors in the 2020 NBA free agency.
