If there’s one team that could use some big-name players like DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge to change the culture, it is the New York Knicks. In this deal, they could take advantage of the San Antonio Spurs’ desire to get younger within their roster.

The Knicks have turned into the laughingstock of the NBA over the last decade. This begins at the top with their inept owner and continues down to their future at head coaching options on sidelines.

With Tom Thibodeau now running the show, New York has a chance to turn into a capable basketball team. However, they will still need to add players. Simply having underachieving recently drafted prospects alongside Julius Randle is not enough.

The San Antonio Spurs missed out on the postseason for the first time in 22 years. This has moved them towards a rebuild and that could begin with getting rid of some star names. Both DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge are on big contracts for the upcoming season. If the Spurs decided to make a trade, they will be first on the list.

If the New York Knicks want to upgrades to their roster, here’s how a deal with the San Antonio Spurs for LaMarcus Aldridge and DeMar DeRozan would look.
