As the New York Knicks continue to rebuild under the new leadership of Tom Thibodeau, they are looking to improve their roster through various means. According to Stephen Bundy of the New York Daily News, One potential target they have been monitoring is CJ. McCollum of the Portland Trail Blazers. Despite the injury, McCollum is still causing concern.
Various reports link the Knicks to other potential trade targets, including Chicago’s Zac LaVine, Houston’s Victor Oladipo, and New Orleans’ Lonzo Ball. Sources said that they are also monitoring Portland’s CJ McCollum, who suffered a broken foot and is still receiving about $100 million in guarantees within three years after the season.
Since McCollum was injured, the Blazers (18-10) have performed well, and shooting guard youngster Gary Trent Jr. has risen. But it is not clear whether Portland is willing to trade with McCollum.
According to reports, the Knicks also intend to drive Bradley Beal (Bradley Beal) out of Washington, but Beal, who has been working on the troubled Wizards, is unlikely to give in.
