New York Knicks: Projected 2020-21 Depth Chart

The New York Knicks have some serious young talent. It’s going to be a matter of putting those guys together in a way that makes sense and meshing before they will be a good team. There will be quite a few young guys who will have the opportunity to have breakout seasons in New York under new head coach Tom Thibodeau.

We broke down the Knicks’ depth chart for the 2020-21 season below. We’ve also previously published a summary of the Knicks’ offseason.

Biggest Questions

  • Will Tom Thibodeau prioritize veterans and winning or developing young talent? There are several positions that will be interesting to watch when it comes to playing time. For example, will he play Mitchell Robinson or Nerlens Noel more throughout the season?
  • Will Kevin Knox finally become the player the Knicks thought he would be when they selected him No. 9 overall in the 2018 NBA Draft? He still hasn’t found a way to break into the rotation in New York and it may not be any easier this season.
