I may have said it previously, but the thing that has me so excited about Ntilikina is that there is a very logical reason to think he was underdrafted - he didn't work out for any teams (I believe, right?), and the league STILL has the International Fear™ running through them, at a subconscious level at the very least. For the most part, the international pick has to work twice as hard to get NBA Draft Street Cred from the people making the selections, even if they're just as good as anyone else.
The same thing happened with KP, and there's even more reason to see it as a viable path for Frank because KP actually held workouts stateside. Frank was a lock top-10 pick entering the year, but then didn't do anything except play his season in France and have a pre-draft meeting with the Knicks. If he's actually LEGIT and involves himself in the whole draft process dog & pony show instead of staying in France all season, he goes before the Knicks pick at 8.
Of course if he's not, then he might have gotten exposed by the draft process and the Knicks overdrafted him. But from what we've seen this offseason there's no reason to think he doesn't have the potential to make an impact. Just like KP, I feel like there's a real chance Ntilikina was underdrafted, and not based on my own scouting or feelings about the player, but on the simple fact that he came from a place that gives FO people reservations AND he didn't do anything to absolve them of their fears.
That's a pretty exciting prospect situation to me. And it's with a guard for once!
