With only a few hours into the NBA free agency frenzy, the Knicks are by far the biggest losers. All of their moves throughout the past year was centered around acquiring Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and/or Zion Williamson. They got none of them.
The Knicks tanked the season in hopes of getting the 1st overall pick to get Zion Williamson. They got the #3 pick, therefore not Zion.
So let me get this straight, Knicks org & fans……
You trade Kristaps for a player you should’ve got in the draft with the notion of drafting Zion and getting KD with Kyrie. You not only get the 3rd overall, but let those two go to Brooklyn of all places.

The Knicks traded away Kristaps Porzingis to free up cap space with the hope of signing Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. Both Durant and Irving signed with the Nets instead.

On the bright side they signed Julius Randle.
Free agent Julius Randle has agreed to a three-year, $63M deal with the New York Knicks, CAA agents Aaron Mintz and Steve Heumann tell ESPN.
