Though they suffered through another cellar-dwelling season this year, Knicks faithful were elated to see the emergence of their first-round draft pick last year, Kristaps Porzingis, who likely would have won Rookie of the Year had it not been for the ridiculous season Karl Anthony-Towns had out in Minnesota. This kid was good, and fans and brass alike immediately began searching for the third piece to team up with Porzingis and Carmelo Anthony. Just three days into the offseason, the Knicks are have found the playmaker they so desperately need in the backcourt: Derrick Rose. The Bulls are sending Derrick Rose, Justin Holiday and a 2017 2nd-round pick for Robin Lopez, Jerian Grant and Jose Calderon, per source. — K.C.
