The New York Knicks off season officially began when the regular season came to an end. The Knicks have missed the NBA Playoffs for the past two years. The team will be looking to sign a superstar this summer. The Knicks have plenty of players on their radar. One of those players the Knicks are interested in is point guard Mike Conley. According to Morning USA News, the belief is that the Knicks are the favorite to sign the former Ohio State Buckeyes star during free agency. New York is one of the few teams with a genuine need for a starting point guard.
Mike Conley was selected with the fourth overall pick in the 2007 NBA Draft by the Memphis Grizzlies. He spent two seasons coming off the bench. After getting the starting gig, he has played a key role for the Grizzlies. Throughout his career, Conley has never been selected to an All Star game. It’s not that he isn’t good but it is because of the point guards in the Western Conference.
