Although the trade market for Washington Wizards star may not be loaded with potential suitors, it seems the New York Knicks are placing themselves in the mix. While the Wizards haven’t done much in terms of making players available via trades (at least publicly) after last month’s blow up, the Knicks are patiently waiting.
It’s unknown how long they’ll be waiting, but a potential deal to send Wall to New York seems possible at the very least. As Marc Berman of the New York Post reported, sources believe the Knicks are “stocking up their young assets” to make a run at the All-Star guard. He also detailed what may be included in a potential deal, which would need to be a three-team trade.
Some in the league believe the Knicks are stocking up their young assets and will make a major play for Wall if he becomes available. The Wizards (9-14) were said to be ready to break it up after their disastrous start. It would have to be a three-team deal with the Knicks throwing in Ntilikina, Dotson, Courtney Lee (for cap purposes), a 2020 first-round and second-round pick.
Although the potential trade to send Wall to the Knicks could make sense for all teams involved, there’s a chance it may not happen anytime soon. This comes thanks to a unique rule of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.
