NBA News: Orlando Magic Jalen Suggs NY Knicks Trade Deal Blooming

The Orlando Magic’s guard Jalen Suggs is expected to get traded to the New York Knicks this offseason. The youngster has not been as impressive as it was speculated; a lottery has more eyes set on them and that increases a bit of pressure on the player. Is this average performance a result of the pressure he has been put under? Nobody knows. The player has not been that bad either, but since the expectations were high, it feels a bit too low.

The Gonzaga Bulldogs’ product played 53 games for the Magic last season and averaged 9.9 points, 2.9 assists, and 3 rebounds per game while shooting 32.7 percent from beyond the arc. The Magic have a logjam of players of similar profiles on their roster, and they would be happy to flip some of them for value. The Knicks have shown their interest in signing the 22-year-old. Can they make it happen? Here is all the information you need about the trade between the Orlando Magic and the New York Knicks involving Jalen Suggs.
