It is no secret that the New York Knicks are on the lookout for a point guard to fit into Phil Jackson's triangle offence.
The New York franchise have had a poor second half to the season after going .500 in the first 44 games of the campaign.
With Krystaps Porzingis and Carmelo Anthony, the Knicks have a base to hopefully build on their roster in free agency, but are looking for a point guard who can penetrate the opposing defence.

However, as per the New York Post, president Phil Jackson insisted he was not obsessed with bringing in a star at the point.
He said: “My idea of chasing a point guard where it becomes just an obsession isn’t necessary. It’s not necessary. We can play the game without that. But we still need good performers.”
The Knicks have the third-worst record in the Eastern Conference and are third from the bottom in the East and lost again on Friday night as Chris Paul inspired the Los Angeles Clippers to victory.
Jackson's triangle offence has polarised opinion in the league but it appears he is sticking with the game plan that brought him so much success as head coach of the Los Angles Lakers and Chicago Bulls.
The offence works with two penetrative guards and Jackson will be on the lookout for exactly that instead of just bringing in a big name.
