26. Knicks: Jalen Brunson and Julius Randle

If the New York Knicks make a trade for Donovan Mitchell then their ranking and duo completely change but until then the Knicks don’t have the flashiest dynamic duo. However, they do have a nice young core.

That core includes R.J. Barrett, Obi Toppin, Miles McBride, Quinten Grimes, Cam Reddish, and Jericho Sims. However, the best duo is Jalen Brunson and Julius Randle, with Barret coming in as a close third.

Brunson was the prize of the offseason for New York. He was the number two guy next to Luka Donic last season on the Dallas Mavericks. He’s a solid scorer and with him being the primary playmaker with the Knicks, he should see a career-high in assists.

For the past two years, Julius Randle has been the best player on the Knicks. Last season, he tried to do too much and his game suffered as a result. However, with Brunson on the team, he should do better moving forward.
