New York Knicks

Report: Knicks don’t want to ruin team chemistry by making big trade before deadline

Ahn Fire Digital

The New York Knicks reportedly are unlikely to make a major move by the NBA’s March 25 trade deadline.

New York, who is currently 21-22, isn’t looking to mess up its chemistry by making a major deal, according to SNY’s Ian Begley.

“Several teams in touch with the Knicks recently are under the impression that New York is unlikely to trade major assets for a top player at the deadline,” Begley wrote. “That echoes what we noted last week.

 

“Some teams in touch with the Knicks cited a common factor: A major trade in the middle of the season could disrupt the chemistry established by New York’s current group.”

The Knicks have been one of the league’s surprise teams this season, as they currently hold the No. 7 seed in the Eastern Conference.

New York certainly could add another player to bolster its playoff chances, but it seems that the Knicks would make a smaller-scale deal or be active in the buyout market rather than make a push for a star.
