Although Knicks fans may have had their trade fill following the Kristaps Porzingis blockbuster, there's still some time to go until the trade deadline with several possible directions for New York.
Here are a few of the directions they can go in by Thursday afternoon.
It may seem as if trading Porzingis knocked them out of the hunt for Davis, but the Knicks now have four first-round picks to offer up, along with expiring contracts and remaining young pieces like Kevin Knox, Frank Ntilikina, Dennis Smith Jr., Damyean Dotson, Mitchell Robinson and Allonzo Trier. And Davis reportedly has the Knicks on equal footing with the Lakers when it comes to where he would re-sign. Some sort of combination of the above likely won't do the trick, and the Knicks may not even give it a shot as it would compromise their grand plan of netting two max stars this summer. On the other hand, the Knicks are reportedly one of the teams Davis would re-sign with, and there's no telling how sure the front office is about being a free agent destination. In a dream scenario, the Knicks deal for Davis and convince a Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving to sign for less than the max, netting all three. Wake up readers, time for school.
Flip DeAndre Jordan
New York should be in full-on tank mode, and keeping Jordan around could result in some unwanted wins, though they're reportedly planning on keeping him -- in part to help them recruit Durant. If they change their mind, buying him out is the likelier option over a trade, as the Knicks won't want to take back any long-term salary and teams won't want to deal anything of major value for a rental. But there could be some marginal deals out there -- shipping him to the Lakers for Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Rajon Rondo and a second-round pick, or the Kings for Iman Shumpert, Zach Randolph and a similar pick. This type of deal would only happen if a team is desperate for an upgrade for this season and don't think Jordan will slip down to them on the waiver wire.
Trade Emmanuel Mudiay or Noah Vonleh
The Knicks might be able to get a stronger return on Mudiay or Vonleh, two cheaper guys that will upgrade rosters without the risk of a massive shake-up. The Knicks could look for a protected pick or somewhat-intriguing prospect in exchange. Think Vonleh for Toronto's Malachi Richardson or Sacramento's Skal Labissiere, or Mudiay for Portland's Zach Collins or Phoenix's Dragan Bender.
Take on salary and picks
This move is extremely unlikely given the Knicks just traded away their best player in pursuit of -- among other reasons -- cap space, but it's a generally smart move for a rebuilding team with spare cap room. If a team is willing to part with a first-round pick in order to dump a player who's being paid through 2020 or 2021, New York should hear them out, especially if summer 2019 is more of a gamble than an inside job.
Smith and Ntilikina fighting over point guard minutes may seem awkward at face value, but head coach David Fizdale seems to like the idea, and even mentioned playing them together. A trade involving either that's not part of something bigger seems unlikely.
Enes Kanter has been disgruntled for most of this season, but few teams will want to take him on without shipping non-expiring deals back to the Knicks. It might have been workable earlier this season, but after Kanter's extremely vocal complaints and uninspiring play, there likely isn't much of a market for him now.
