This Knicks-Pistons trade reunites Derrick Rose and Tom Thibodeau

The New York Knicks are off to a surprising start this season but they are still a rebuilding team with plenty of holes in the lineup. This sounds a lot like the Detroit Pistons, except they are not off to such a strong start. There was a chance for two rebuilding franchises to help the other out in a trade come to the NBA trade deadline.

The Knicks are being led by Julius Randle and RJ Barrett. Randle is enjoying the best season of his career while Barrett is beginning to come into his own in year two. Rookie Immanuel Quickley is also off to a good start while Obi Toppin continues to improve and get healthy.

Tom Thibodeau has the Knicks playing defense and that’s the most important thing early on. They are currently one of the best teams in the NBA as far as points per game allowed.

There is one glaring area where the Knicks need help. That is at point guard. The Detroit Pistons drafted Killian Hayes with the No. 8 overall pick in the draft. He is going to miss time with an injury but they believe that he is their franchise point guard moving forward.

Detroit has two veteran names that could be traded at the NBA trade deadline. Blake Griffin and Derrick Rose have been around the block in the NBA and might be on their way out come February. 

If the Knicks are looking to add another point guard, whether in a starting or backup role, Detroit might be able to help. There is a chance that Rose ends up back in New York for a second stint with the Knicks.
