The Knicks are among the teams who will have interest in Reggie Bullock, per SNY sources. There is mutual interest between New York and Bullock, SNY sources say.
Following the end of the season, it seemed as if Bullock would be willing to stay in Los Angeles. However, maybe the guard feels he could get paid more if he went to a different team, especially following the season that he had in 2018-2019.
Bullock proved himself an effective shooter, as he shot 37.7% from three between the Pistons and Lakers last season. The season before in Detroit, he shot 44.5% from beyond the arc but on fewer attempts.
Bullock is the exact type of player that the Lakers would want to surround LeBron James and Anthony Davis with: a shooter that can space the floor when he’s on the court, and a good character guy off of the court.
The former North Carolina guard is known for his actions in the LBGTQ+ community following the murder of his sister in July of 2014. Bullock is a finalist for the Muhammad Ali Sports Humanitarian Award. The winner of the award will be announced on July 9th.
