Charles Barkley crushes Knicks roster: ‘They’re not close at all’

Charles Barkley Crushes Knicks Roster: 'They'Re Not Close At All'

After the return of the Knicks in the draft lottery, Charles Barkley doesn’t see much hope on Leon Rose’s roster.

“They’re not close. They’re not close at all,” Barkley said on Wednesday as he promoted an appearance at next month’s celebrity golf tournament, the American Century Championships. “They only found two to three people who would make their NBA debuts. are. The number 1 thing they have to do is get talent. They got a bunch of JAGs when I called. Just a boy.”

For context, the Knicks’ starting lineup last season was Alec Burks, Evan Fournier, RJ Barrett, Julius Randall, and Michelle Robinson. The bench included Obie Toppin and Emmanuel Quickley.

“They don’t get any better than the people of Atlanta, Orlando,” Barkley said. “There’s probably only three guys on that team who are making their NBA debut. So the No. 1 thing they have to do is get some talent. They lack talent right now. And that’s really unfortunate because we have to be competitive. requires the Knicks. And right now, they’re not competitive.”

The Knicks elevated to fourth seed in 2021, but bombed in free agency and moved east to 11th last season. Randall’s regression was one of the biggest issues, leaving the question of whether the Knicks would be better off trading their leading scorer.

The Knicks own the 11th pick in this month’s draft and are looking to advance Dallas guard Jalen Brunson to free agency. The major maneuver is a tradeoff for Donovan Mitchell, who is reportedly dissident in Utah and a native of Westchester.

This week’s resignation of Utah coach Quinn Snyder added to speculation of a Jazz overhaul. Barkley said the Knicks would improve even if he traded half the roster for Mitchell.

“Because you don’t have much in your wardrobe right now,” he said.

Barkley lost some credibility with his Knicks analysis, claiming that his last good trade was getting Randall from the Lakers. The Knicks signed Randall as a free agent in 2019, a year after leaving the Lakers for the Pelicans.

,[The Knicks] Not even close to being relevant right now,” Barkley said.
