Knicks fans need to realize they aren’t landing Collin Sexton from the Cavs.
The only trade the Knicks should even consider giving the Cavs for Collin Sexton involves Immanuel Quickley, R.J. Barrett, and their 2021 first-round NBA draft pick. If it doesn’t start with those three items, it’s a bad trade. Why start off a column like that? Well, Knicks fans and writers for the Knicks keep pitching some of the worst, lopsided, never-going-to-happen trade ideas we’ve ever seen.
Most of the trades are “bust and late-pick for Sexton“. This is why the Cavs would need back Barrett, Quickley and at least one (but more than likely two) first-round draft picks for Sexton. The Knicks’ talent on their own are, at their best, good starters at best but none of them are actually superstars.
What makes anyone think the Cavs would settle for that. Sure, Koby Altman as team GM is about as effective as an Atari controller in 2021, but he’s not dumb. Trading Sexton to the Knicks for their package is as fireable as an offense can be without it being a felony.
So enter Clutch Sports’ Mitchell Widmeier, an out-and-out Knicks fan. His three trades are so bad that Cleveland should impose the Widmeier Tax, a tax of $1,000, paid only by Widmeier, should he ever enter Cuyahoga County as punishment for his bad and lopsided trade ideas.
Here are his three ideas, and they’re not just bad, but proof that New Yorkers may be the most self-inflated sports fans in the world; because each and every one of the players offered in these trade scenarios absolutely suck.
