This summer will ascertain whether this ranking is way too high or laughably low. For the time being, that means it ought to be just right. The’Bockers are a blank canvas. The Kristaps Porzingis deadline deal erased most of long-term obligations. Their greatest guaranteed salary for next season is Frank Ntilikina’s $4.9 million. No dream is too large for the Knicks right now. Since Bleacher Report’s Dan Favale broke down, it is not impossible to find a scenario where Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and Anthony Davis all call Madison Square Garden house next season. Is it possible? Not in the least. However, if the Knicks have all their built-in market benefits, plus plenty of cap room and a decent shot at securing the No. 1 choice, that’s an army of resources many clubs would struggle to match. There’s also an underground floor to take into account. Cap space might not mean Irving or Durant. Maybe it’s Kemba Walker and Khris Middleton. Perhaps it’s not any one. Given the revamped lottery chances, the Knicks may end up drafting fifth or fourth. So, instead of Zion Williamson (along with a possible route to Davis), maybe the draft haul is only Cam Reddish or even Jarrett Culver. New York already has some youth in place, although its possible remains in flux. While Mitchell Robinson appears before schedule and Allonzo Trier has been a tremendous surprise, Kevin Knox looks predictably raw. Additionally, Dennis Smith Jr. is far from a sure thing, also Ntilikina’s prognosis is cloudy at best.
