Report: Knicks concerned about giving up too many assets for Chris Paul

The New York Knicks reportedly are at a crossroads in their pursuit of Oklahoma City Thunder guard Chris Paul.

According to SNY’s Ian Begley, New York is worried about giving up too many of its assets to acquire Paul. The Knicks reportedly believe they can acquire a star in the future and don’t want to forgo that possibility because they traded for Paul.

“But there is a concern about the amount of assets New York would have to surrender to trade for Paul,” Begley wrote.

 

“Some MSG people are wary of giving up too many assets in a Paul deal because they want to ensure that New York has enough capital in place for a future trade for another high-profile player, SNY sources say.”

Paul, 35, is past his prime, but he still led the Thunder to the playoffs last season.

While the Knicks may believe that they have the assets to acquire a star, they have mostly struck out in their attempts to lure big names in the free agent market.

Because of that, one can wonder how likely it is that a star requests a trade to the Knicks.

Paul certainly would make New York better should it acquire him, but the Knicks are still many pieces away from contending for a title.
