The Knicks can create well over $50 million in cap space this offseason, and acquiring Sexton would hardly dent that flexibility. 633 View Profile
If the Knicks view Sexton as more of a shooting guard than a point guard they could acquire him and then use their space to sign one of the many other veteran point guards that will be available this offseason. The Knicks could, in theory, add Sexton and then handpick the perfect backcourt partner for him in free agency.
It should also be noted that Sexton is represented by CAA. Knicks president Leon Rose is a former CAA agent.
