The New York Knicks had it all going for them.
After finishing the 2018-19 season with the worst record in the NBA, the Knicks were in prime position to land the No. 1 pick in the upcoming draft – giving the team a shot at Zion Williamson.
However, after the NBA Draft lottery netted the team the No. 3 pick, Knicks fans were left contemplating landing Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant in free agency.
Not long after, reports emerged suggesting Irving turned his sights to the Brooklyn Nets.
Now, another NBA star is reportedly “unlikely” to join the Knicks this offseason.
Charlotte Hornets point guard Kemba Walker is a potential target for the Knicks. However, a recent report from SNY’s Ian Begley suggests New York landing the star point guard “isn’t a likely outcome.”
From the report:
But some opposing execs monitoring Charlotte’s free agent situation believe, currently, that if Walker chose to sign somewhere outside of Charlotte, going to New York isn’t a likely outcome for the point guard, per SNY sources.
Knicks fans have to be hoping to at least land Kevin Durant this offseason.
And yet, if the Warriors lose to the Toronto Raptors in the NBA Finals, Durant could return to the team knowing he’s a necessity for a title.
