Knicks bolster bench by acquiring Burks and Bogdanovic from Pistons

DETROIT (AP) — The New York Knicks have acquired some needed scoring punch in Alec Burks and Bojan Bogdanovic from the Detroit Pistons. The Knicks sent Quentin Grimes, Evan Fournier, Malachi Flynn, Ryan Arcidiacono and two second-round picks to the Pistons on Thursday before the NBA’s trade deadline. The Knicks are playing without their entire starting frontcourt of All-Star Julius Randle, OG Anunoby and Mitchell Robinson and have been looking for replacements. They found them in Bogdanovic, a reliable outside shooter, and Burks, who played well in a previous stint with the Knicks.
