There is excitement in the Big Apple with a project like that of the New York Knicks, and there are plenty of reasons to get excited thinking that they will continue taking steps forward with the goal of the ring.
The top priority has been to maintain the block and transmit confidence to the group that took them to the Conference semifinals last year. The New York Knicks are aware that they have a project on their hands with ring potential if things are polished with patience. They can choose the path of adding mid-high range pieces and see if Julius Randle recovers his best level and the youngsters evolve, or they could also choose to sign a big star. Meanwhile, they must continue competing and generating an identity as a group.

To achieve this, the arrival of Donte DiVincenzo will be very useful, he can give the team a qualitative leap on both sides of the court. A more consistent and regular level is expected from Quickley and Barrett, both being the pieces that can determine where the project goes. Tom Thibodeau will continue trying to improve the defense and the big unknown seems to be the always controversial Randle, who if he is inspired has an All-Star level, but if he starts to misguide, he is capable of destroying the entire project.
