Malcolm Brogdon, Guard, Portland Trail Blazers
If the Knicks look to add a bigger guard Malcolm Brogdon is the more likely fit over Bruce Brown Jr. Brogdon will likely take less to acquire than Brown while bringing a higher upside for the Knicks. Brogdon is averaging 15.8 points per game while adding 3.7 rebounds per game and 5.5 assists per game. Adding Brogdon would be a great addition in adding someone who can lead the second unit through scoring or distributing the basketball.
Brogdon would bring the high-upside scoring that the second unit has missed since trading Immanuel Quickley. Brogdon's recorded games of 30, 24, 23, and several games of 18+ points in the past month and could help spell Jalen Brunson in terms of scoring. Brogdon's defense doesn't jump off of the charts, but his 41.6% three-point percentage would be very welcomed on the Knicks.
The injury history with Brogdon is a massive concern in trading for the Guard however, this also will lower his trade price. Brogdon was headed to the Clippers this off-season before concerns around his elbow injury caused the Clippers to pass on acquiring Brogdon.
