If anyone is opposed to this, it may be the Cavaliers.
After all, they’re flipping LeVert’s expiring contract for Fournier’s three-year deal. At this stage in his career, the $18.5 million price tag attached to that contract is a net negative. Still, the Cavs can justify the expenditure
Meanwhile, Atlanta may be a nice landing spot for LeVert. In all likelihood, he’d operate as a sixth man there. As a ball-dominant scorer, he’s not an optimal fit with Trae Young. He is, on the other hand, a great option to spell the superstar point guard when he sits.
If the New York Knicks do only one thing this offseason, let it be filling the starting point guard spot. A point guard has been a need in New York seemingly forever. Last season, they thought they had it worked out with Kemba Walker and Derrick Rose, but things didn’t pan out as they had hoped.
They cannot go into this season without a bonafide starting option. Immanuel Quickley is certainly an option, but he looks best as a combo guard off the bench that can fluctuate between lead facilitator and scoring guard.
That leaves the trade market. The Denver Nuggets are where the Knicks should place their first call, as Monte Morris would be an excellent target for them. Morris showed that he is more than capable of handling a starting point guard spot, taking over for the injured Jamal Murray this season.
