Breaking down a few of the best and worst moves made by the New York Knicks this offseason. 

Heading into last season, no one really knew what to expect from the new-look New York Knicks team featuring Jalen Brunson. Taking much of the league by surprise, the Knicks finished as the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference standings during the regular season before losing to the Miami Heat (the eventual Eastern Conference champions) in six games in the conference semifinals.

All in all, it was a pretty solid season for a Knicks team that was looking to take a step forward as a franchise. Looking to possibly enter the conversation as a potential conference finalist, the Knicks needed to add to their supporting cast this offseason while also mapping what the future is going to look like for the team.

Did the New York Knicks do enough to improve themselves this offseason?

The big question for the Knicks heading into the season is whether the moves that they made during the offseason will prove to be enough to, at the very least, make another appearance in the conference semifinals. The next natural step, of course, is to make a run to the conference finals or even the NBA Finals. However, in a star-driven league, that could prove to be difficult without the addition of another star.

In an attempt to answer the question of whether the Knicks improved this offseason, we take a look back at some of the best and worst moves they made during the summer.
