Bullock is known as a greater shooter and defender.
Jared Zwerling, of ESPNNew York, has speculated that the Knicks should take a good look at North Carolina small forward Reggie Bullock.
Considered one of the best shooters in the draft, Zwerling writes that Bullock could help create fluidity and motion in the Knicks’ offense through his off-ball movements.
Whereas the Knicks' best three-point threat, Steve Novak, is mostly a spot-up shooter with limited mobility, Bullock could function as a shooter cutting through screens and running the baselines. He is also considered a strong defender, which could quickly earn him minutes with head coach Mike Woodson.
However, how much he would really open up the Knicks’ offense is debatable. The Knicks led the NBA in three-point field-goals this past season, so that’s the last area they need improvement in. They also already have a defensive-minded, ball-hawking guard in Iman Shumpert.
Where they hurt the most was when their second-leading scorer, J.R Smith, couldn't make shots. Without a secondary scorer, Carmelo Anthony was often forced to go into isolation plays, which aren't good enough to beat a great team like the Indiana Pacers.
Anthony had floor-spacers in that series (Jason Kidd, Raymond Felton, Chris Copeland and Smith), but he didn't have any one who could create for themselves efficiently.
This is a tough one, as Bullock is very talented, but in the end, his skill set is too redundant with the Knicks' current makeup.
