|Team Outlook and Scouting Report|
RJ Barrett, Julius Randle and Bobby Portis are all individually talented forwards and who wouldn't want to be rich, young and in New York City? They also added Taj Gibson and at the end of the day the Knicks improved a ton (from 18 to 26 wins) but are still an afterthought with 0% chance of making the playoffs. We do not project them to be a playoff team in '19-20.
