The New York Knicks’ 2021-22 season was one they would rather forget. They went from being in the top four in the 2020-21 season to missing the Play-In Tournament in 2021-22. Part of the reason for this was injury problems sustained at the point guard position.

The other factor was that Julius Randle was less effective than the previous season. The Atlanta Hawks showed how to defend Randle and the Knicks in their first-round playoff matchup last season, and the rest of the NBA did the same this season.

They then added some quality offensive players in Evan Fournier and Kemba Walker. Unfortunately, this didn’t have the impact the Knicks wanted. They were better offensively, but it had an adverse impact on their defense, which is what got them into the playoffs last season. Now, let’s take a look at the roster moves for this season that will help the Knicks move up the rankings.

The roster moves the New York Knicks need to make this offseason: 1. Pass from Cam Reddish

The Knicks made a trade this season, bringing Cam Reddish and Solomon Hill to the franchise, only giving up Kevin Knox and a conditional pick through the Charlotte Hornets. While it seemed like the Knicks won this trade, this was not the case at all.

Reddish had the worst over/under of any Hawks player until he was traded, and this trend continued with the Knicks. He also came to the Knicks injured and ended the season out with another injury. This has been the Reddish story for the past few seasons, and the Knicks need players who can get on the floor to help this team.

The young wing has a team option for next season worth just under $6.0 million. The Knicks would be in a better position if they used that money elsewhere.
