The New York Knicks do not only have their sights set on Kyrie Irving. Â The team is reportedly having interest in â€˜Scaryâ€™ Terry Rozier and Marcus Morris Sr.
This news comes as somewhat of a surprise for the Knicks. Â They have been linked to Irving for what seems like forever. Â However, being linked to Rozier seems relatively new. Â The Knicks did have interest in Rozier last season as well, Real GM reports.
Our guess is that the Knicks are looking for a backup plan if Irving does not sign with the Knicks this off-season. Â Not a bad place to start.
Rozier is just waiting for his time to be the starting point guard of a team. Â However, he is a restricted free agent. Â So, if the Celtics lose Irving then they might match whatever offer comes forward.
Morris, on the other hand, seems like he would be a perfect Knick. Â He is having a career high in field goal percentage, 44.7%, and rebounds, 6.1. Â Morris also adds 13.1 points off the bench this season as well.
He is a bruiser that is not afraid to get dirty. Â Morris seems he would fit perfectly in the with 90s Knicks. Â He might not come as cheap as his current contract considering how valuable of an asset he could be.
If the Knicks were to miss out on Irving and a point guard in the draft, then Rozier could be a solid option to possibly take over the starting reigns? Â Heâ€™ll have to compete with Dennis Smith Jr. and Frank Ntilikina for that spot first.
