Tiki & Tierney: How many games would Knicks win this season with Donovan Mitchell?


If the Knicks were to get Donovan Mitchell and still have a few other bench pieces left, how many games would they be set up to win this season?

BT floated the hypothetical to Tiki during Wednesday’s show.

“If they have a starting five of Brunson, Mitchell, Robinson, Barrett, Randle, and at least two or three serviceable pieces coming off the bench,” BT said. “How many wins are you giving them?”

After musing that either Evan Fournier or Derrick Rose would likely be gone to make the Mitchell money work, and that some depth pieces like Obi Toppin or Jericho Sims could still be on the team after the blockbuster trade, Tiki’s verdict was:

“I’m gonna say 43.5,” Tiki said.

BT was a little more optimistic, but he noted that it wouldn’t be by much.

“I would think that’s a little low,” BT said. “I would be the over on that.”
