New York Knicks trade proposal brings homecoming, inner depth

The New York Knicks are looking for a little magic at the close of trading. In that case, what better place than Orlando?

A trade proposal from FanNations “The Magic Insider” brings Manhattan and Central Florida together, proposing a swap that will catch up with the Knicks Mo Bamba while Isaiah Hartenstein and Cam Reddish move south.

Though Bamba, the sixth overall pick of the 2018 draft, reunited with Orlando last offseason, he’s no stranger to having his name associated with the Knicks, according to the media as the future Cleveland Cavalier sought new surroundings. Bamba, 24, from Harlem, averaged a career-best 10.6 points and 8.1 rebounds. He has returned to the reserve this time but could find an immediate opportunity in New York with starting center Mitchell Robinson out for at least three weeks.
