The New York Knicks’ intention to pursue a floor-spacing frontcourt talent has been made abundantly clear. It would be wise to pursue a veteran like Serge Ibaka regardless of any selection in the upcoming 2020 NBA Draft.

There has been videos circulating of Mitchell Robinson working on extending his range but that part of his game remains unproven until it results in consistency during games. In the meantime, pursuing a floor-spacing option next to Julius Randle makes the most sense.

There are team options for both Bobby Portis ($15.75M) and Taj Gibson ($10.29M) that could be declined to clear additional salary cap spending room. As a result, there would be little issue creating the necessary room to sign Ibaka.

Failing to make the playoffs would still be the Knicks’ reality if they did sign Ibaka. Depending on his priorities after winning a championship, signing a short-term deal for significant compensation with the Knicks wouldn’t be the worse option for Ibaka.
