With the 2013 NBA draft now officially in the books, the New York Knicks will look to evaluate their players, possibly re-sign some key free agents and see how their depth chart pans out heading towards next season.
The future of J.R. Smith, the reigning NBA Sixth Man of the Year, remains clouded in uncertainty. If Smith receives an offer exceeding $5.5 million annually from any other team looking to acquire his services, the Knicks won't have the financial flexibility to retain him.
Losing Smith would be a huge blow to a Knicks team that's looking to build off of an impressive 2012-13 campaign. New York advanced to the second round of the NBA playoffs for the first time since 1999-2000.
The landscape of the Atlantic Division has drastically changed over the last few days. A blockbuster trade that sent Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce from the Boston Celtics to the Brooklyn Nets has added more intrigue and drama to the Knicks-Nets in-state rivalry.
The current core of the roster is more than capable of keeping up with the new and improved Nets, but the road to a second-straight division title will certainly be more difficult.
There are some holes and question marks in the team's depth chart that need to be looked at, however, the Knicks will have the summer to address those issues and fill out their rotation accordingly
