The New York Knicks have struggled to a 13-16 record so far this season. But the poor record hasn't pushed New York off of adding players who can help them this season. The team reportedly has a long list of players to trade for to aid a playoff push.
One target for the Knicks is Eric Gordon of the Houston Rockets. New York point guard Derrick Rose has long advocated for his team to trade for Gordon. The two were AAU teammates and have been known to want to play together in the NBA.
Gordon has had a bounce-back season for the rebuilding Rockets. He's averaged 14.7 points on 47.7% shooting from the field, including an impressive 43.4% from behind the arc. Gordon's contract is for $18.2 million this season and is fully guaranteed for $19.6 million for 2022-23. Gordon's deal is fully non-guaranteed for $20.9 million for 2024-24, unless he hits some unlikely triggers this season or next.
