The Knicks need a strong locker room presence, tough player, and someone who can help mentor first-round pick Kristaps Porzingis. David West could be that guy at the right price. But the consummate pro is 34 and could opt to join a contender.

Wesley Matthews Jr. is a risk after rupturing his Achilles last season, but he is said to be ahead of schedule and could be ready for training camp. The Blazers' guard is a good three-point shooter and reliable scorer, but the Knicks shouldn't overpay.
