Knicks Looking For Back-Up Point Guard; Could Trade Douglas
The New York Knicks front office is looking to acquire a back-up point guard for Chauncey Billups and for a potential all-star floor general in the future. Currently the Knicks have to rely on the young Toney Douglas to provide rest for the starter, but he is still developing his skills.
As draft day looms on the NBA, the Knicks are looking to deal away Douglas for a better reserve point guard. According the New York Daily News, the Knicks are looking into a trade that would possibly bring Jonny Flynn to New York.
Flynn, who now plays with the Minnesota Timberwolves, was a star player for Syracuse University and was a fan-favorite whenever he played at Madison Square Garden. Flynn was the sixth overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft, but he was not been able to showcase his true talents do to injury. However, Toney Douglas’ recent shouldersurgery may kill this potential trade.
The Knicks are also looking into Ramon Sessions if the Flynn trade does not go through. Sessions currently plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers, but his tenure there may end if consensus number one pick Kyrie Irving takes his talents to Cleveland.
