AM: From here on, What’s the general feeling about what the Knicks should do? Do they need to focus in on winning and aim to make a playoff return, or do they focus on developing and improving and see where that leaves them?

SL: My expert answer to this question is that I have no answer. I’d love to see the Knicks do both.

On one hand, this is a team with a definite veteran presence and with the firecracker known as Porzingis, could maybe make a run if they do make the playoffs. Plus, you always want young players to get a taste of that playoff pressure, so I think it could be great for guys like Kristaps, Langston Galloway, and Jerian Grant to get that experience under their belt.

On the other, you don’t want this team to get so wrapped up in playing for this season that they forget they’re still in rebuilding mode. I think fans would forgive the Knicks if they traded away a veteran or two in order to secure some young prospects or draft picks, but at this point, nobody wants to see that trade go the other way around. Especially after the all-consuming hell hole known as the Andrea Bargnani trade.
