There has been a whole lot of talk coming out of New York lately, especially regarding the upcoming offseason.

Who will they draft? Will they be able to get the superstar(s) they need? Who has to go to make that a cap reality?

Everyone knows that the Knicks need some serious star power to meet the expectations of New Yorkers. With all of this change, it's no surprise that point guard Frank Ntilikina is still looking to be traded.

Before the February deadline, the Knicks not only declined offers to trade Ntilikina, but also decided to acquire point guard Dennis Smith Jr. who would play ahead of him for the remainder of the season.

Given the circumstances, Ntilikina decided to drop his agent at CAA, one of the largest in the NBA, with the hopes of signing with French agent Bouna Ndiaye, who represents some of the high-profile French players in the NBA.

But his agent may not be his only problem as his contract option approaches. Ntilikina's stock has plummeted since he was drafted in 2017. This is in part do to drastically underwhelming seasons as well as a list of injuries that caused him to miss 31 of the Knicks last 33 games.

A trade might not be in the cards for the Frenchman.
