Now that Phil Jackson is out, the New York is looking to rebuild properly, their priority, of course, is trading NBA All-Star Carmelo Anthony to the Houston Rockets as Melo will only waive his no trade clause for the Rockets.

Knicks show interest in Jack and Goodwin

The New York Knicks are slowly acquiring pieces to use in their rebuild mode once Carmelo Anthony is traded.

Ohm Youngmisuki of ESPN has reported that the Knicks are looking to acquire Jarret Jack and Archie Goodwin in the NBA free agency.

Jarret Jack will be a great fit for the Knicks as they lack point guards after letting go of Derrick Rose. Jarret Jack enters his 13th NBA season next year after playing for numerous teams the past couple of seasons; he has played three seasons in Portland, one season in Indiana, Golden State, and Cleveland, two seasons in Toronto, New Orleans, and Brooklyn. He was injured after signing a ten-day contract with the New Orleans Pelicans last year. Now he is healthy and looking to make another run in the NBA; he has career averages of 11 points, 0.1 blocks, 0.8 steals, 4.5 assists, and 2.9 rebounds while shooting 44.1 percent from the field, 34.5 percent from the three point line, and 85.5 percent from the free throw line.

Archie Lee Goodwin was drafted with the 29th overall pick in the 2013 NBA draft; he will be going into his fifth NBA season if ever the New York Knicks decide to sign him to a contract for next season. He played his first three seasons with the Phoenix Suns and played for the New Orleans Pelicans and Brooklyn Nets last season.

He will be a great addition to the Knicks as they are trying to surround Kristaps Porzingis with solid role players. He has averaged 6.2 points, 0.2 blocks, 0.4 steals, 1.2 assists, and two rebounds while shooting 41.9 percent from the field, 23 percent from the three point line, and 69.8 percent from the charity stripe.
