Denver Nuggets x New York Knicks | Trade Explanation

Isaiah Hartenstein would be the perfect big man behind Jokić. He had a short stint with Denver in the 2020-21 season, so there is some familiarity. Playing in the second unit, he would begin to shrink that massive swing the Nuggets experience, and he also fits within Denver's trade exception from the Monte Morris and Will Barton trade over the offseason.

This is an asset play for the Knicks. Hartenstein has been fine averaging just below 20 minutes per game and has a slightly positive net rating. He's not good enough to fetch a first-round pick, but collecting draft assets is the better play for New York than being a buyer at this season's trade deadline.

New York Knicks x Dallas Mavericks | Trade Explanation

According to NBA insider Marc Stein: Cam Reddish is the New York Knick most likely to be moved before the NBA’s Feb. 9 trade deadline, league sources say. The Knicks have redoubled their efforts to find a new home for Reddish with essentially three weeks to go until the deadline, sources tell The Stein Line, with the Dallas Mavericks having joined the Milwaukee Bucks and the Los Angeles Lakers on the list of known potential trade partners. Reddish has been unable to win the trust or regular minutes of Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau since New York acquired him from Atlanta just over a year ago.
