As the Washington Wizards field calls for John Wall and Bradley Beal, a number of NBA executives believe that the New York Knicks are preparing to make a strong run at Wall in the trade market.

According to Marc Berman of The New York Post, the is belief around the league front offices that the Knicks are stocking up to make a play for the All-Star veteran guard.

“Some in the league believe the Knicks are stocking up their young assets and will make a major play for Wall if he becomes available. The Wizards (9-14) were said to be ready to break it up after their disastrous start. It would have to be a three-team deal with the Knicks throwing in Ntilikina, Dotson, Courtney Lee (for cap purposes), a 2020 first-round and second-round pick.”

With a number of intriguing prospects and pressure on making a move to ensure that Kristaps Porzingis returns to the Knicks next summer, the Knicks could make a big splash.

The Cleveland Cavaliers knew that when they acquired Brandon Knight in a trade deadline deal with the Houston Rockets, that they were acquiring a player that may be a ways away from returning to form.

Knight, who missed the entire 2017-2018 season and appeared in only 14 games this season due to a torn ACL, has been showing signs of a return to form in his short stint with the Cavs, and it has caught the attention of Cavaliers’ head coach Larry Drew.

“I know what he’s gone through over a period with the injury and trying to come back from it,” Drew said of Knight, according to Joe Vardon of The Athletic.

“I know what he’s capable of doing. I know what type of player he is. He’s a fierce competitor. Not only does he do it from an offensive end, but defensively, he’s a tough kid. That addition in our lineup gives us a little versatility as far as we can move people around. … And I know how bad he wants to get back to the Brandon Knight of old. Certainly if he can get back to that, you guys are going to see a terrific player.”

“It was pretty much just talking about what we’re going to do moving forward.”

Washington will have to make some moves this offseason to give Beal some help, and compensate for the loss of John Wall, who is expected to be sidelined for a year.
