With the point guard position a major question mark moving forward, the New York Knicks have a variety of dream options at their disposal.
During the New York Knicks current slide, many of the team’s flaws have been exposed. Some of these flaws include a lack of hustle and giving up too many second-chance points, sloppy ball-handling skills and a lack of toughness under the basket.
However, one of their biggest problems is something that has been plaguing the organization for years. They don’t have a top-tier point guard, specifically one who can distribute the basketball.
This is not a knock on Derrick Rose. He has enjoyed a respectable season, averaging close to 18 points-per-game, and has had some big baskets like the shot that sealed the win against the Portland Trail Blazers in November.
However, Rose is not the long-term solution at point guard if the Knicks want a shot at winning a title in the next five seasons. He has proven to be sloppy with the basketball as of later and his lingering back spasms issues are a cause for concern.
If Rose wants a multi-year deal after this season, the Knicks should tell him thanks but no thanks and stick with Brandon Jennings as a short-term option at the point.
