After trading Mikal Bridges, the Knicks plan to re-sign OG Anunoby; Isaiah Hartenstein might be more demanding, according to rumors

Mikal Bridges at the center of a rare trade between the Knicks and Nets

Mikal Bridges, a forward for the Brooklyn Nets and a former Phoenix Sun, was dealt to the New York Knicks. Four unprotected first-round picks, a protected first from the Milwaukee Bucks, a pick swap, and an additional second-round pick are all included in the return. Considering that Bridges was a part of the trade package that the Brooklyn Nets received in return for Kevin Durant from the Suns, they have now received nine first-round picks, five second-round picks, two pick swaps, and Cam Johnson.

Bridges will become a member of a Knicks team that leads the Eastern Conference and is joint favorites to win it, along with the Boston Celtics. He will play with Josh Hart, Donte DiVincenzo, and Jalen Brunson, his former Villanova colleagues. With important free agents like Josh Hartenstein and OG Anunoby still available, New York does still need to make some adjustments.Bridges told the Nets he was going to sign a new contract with the Knicks and that he wanted to play for them. Bridges’ contract has two years left on it, and this summer is when he can get an extension.

Bridges averaged 21.2 points in his two seasons with the Nets combined. He assumed a more offensive role after playing primarily as a complementary player for Phoenix, a role he will resume with the Knicks.
