The New York Knicks could use some more help wherever they can find it. Barrett continues to improve and he is likely the only player on the Knicks who is untouchable at this point.

With that being said, he has not shown that he is a cornerstone player that can carry the Knicks to a title with the right guys around him.

This means New York should be looking for a trade for some more talent. Brandon Ingram certainly falls into that category. The question is, what would the Knicks give up?

Immanuel Quickley and Obi Toppin are winning over fans while Cam Reddish was acquired in exchange for a first-round pick at the NBA trade deadline. The Knicks will not have to part ways with all three but two might have to be involved.

In this particular deal, Quickley and Reddish are leading the way. New York would also be able to get rid of Fournier’s contract, which is looking like an overpay after year one. Kemba Walker will round out the deal going back to New Orleans after a roller coaster season.

In terms of draft capital, the Knicks do have all of their future first-round picks along with a lottery protected 2023 first-round pick from the Dallas Mavericks to include in a potential offer.

Let’s take a closer look at the case for this NBA trade scenario centered around Brandon Ingram for both the New York Knicks and New Orleans Pelicains.
