The Knicks now have a number of big men including Enes Kanter, Willy Hernangomez, Kyle O’Quinn, Joakim Noah, and Kristaps Porzingis; we breakdown how this group should fit on the court. After signing both Jarret Jack and Ramon Sessions, there will be a battle for point guard minutes as well, how does the Knicks back court shape-up?
