The New York Knicks are renowned as one of the NBA’s most competitive teams, and their performance last season was truly remarkable. However, their ultimate goal is to achieve even greater success and secure a championship title in the future.
Currently, the team is actively exploring trade possibilities involving three players from different teams: Zach Lavine, Donovan Mitchell, and Joel Embiid. Here’s all the information you need to know about these potential trade deals.
New York Knicks Trade Deal No. 1 – Zach Lavine
- Chicago Bulls will receive the Guard Forward RJ Barrett, Evan Fournier, and the 2026 First Round Pick, 2027 First Round Pick, and 2028 First Round Pick.
- In exchange, the New York Knicks will receive the Guard Forward Zach Lavine.
The Chicago Bulls may not consider trading Zach Lavine, but it’s not certain if he will be available. If the Bulls consider rebuilding their roster, then they might want to build it around Lavine.
But if the Knicks send RJ Barrett, Evan Fournier, and multiple first-round picks to the Bulls in exchange for Lavine, the Bulls might be interested in the deal.
New York Knicks Trade Deal No. 2 – Donovan Mitchell
- Cleveland Cavaliers will receive Guard Forward Evan Fournier, Josh Hard, and Guard Immanuel Quickley, a 2026 First-Round Pick, a 2028 First-Round Pick, and a 2030 First-Round Pick.
- In exchange, the New York Knicks will receive G Donovan Mitchell.
The Knicks have had their sights on Donovan Mitchell for quite a while now. In fact, there were rumors linking him to the Knicks last year as well.
Recently, it has been reported that Mitchell might not sign a contract extension with the Cavaliers. This makes him a potentially valuable addition to the Knicks unless they have their eyes on another player for this offseason.
New York Knicks Trade Deal No. 3 – Joel Embiid
- Philadelphia 76ers will receive the Guard Forward Evan Fournier, Center Mitchell Robinson, and Guard Immanuel Quickly, the 2024 First-Round Pick, 2026 First Round Pick, 2027 First Round Pick, 2028 First Round Pick, and 2030 First-Round Pick.
- In exchange, the New York Knicks will receive C Joel Embiid
The Philadelphia 76ers roster situation is getting complicated as James Harden is requesting a trade. And if Embiid also plans to request a trade in the future, they are likely to prefer the Knicks for this trade deal.
