hachimura, bonga, troy, and hamii are probably the most realistic ones still available when we pick. The other bunch in the poll probably long gone

Im convinced as long as jack is still standing and mobile and porzingis remains on the healthy side we'll be fighting hard for wins and we'll be hanging around 9th or 10th seed maybe even 8th if we start winning on the road.

You cant go wrong with either. i'd go knox though i think he's clearly got a higher ceiling and is 3 years younger than mikal.

mikal i could see philly picking him up in a case where you have embiid, simmons and maybe something in fultz so now fill out the rest of the roster with complimentary pieces. He can come in and help the same way convington is right now and be really good or even elite playing his role on both ends. I dont ever see him being a 1st or 2nd option type of player on night to night basis in the NBA.

I feel like we absolutely must get one out of Kevin Knox, Mikal Bridges, Miles Bridges, or Colin Sexton. There is a dropoff after those guys who all fall in that 2nd tier after the top 5.

As long as the knicks do there homework it wont be the end of the world if we dont get those players. i dont find the draft that good either but i think we can still come out of it feeling confident. At the end of the day the knicks need talent period not just at small forward but in general.

nobody likes lonnie walker? that was a recent break out game for him in the absence of bruce brown. i think he'd be a good pairing with KP/Ntilkina love his feel for the game. He did tear his mencius before the season that required surgery, he looks fine though. Whether he declares or not is the questionable part..i think he'll get more attention once he starts getting more minutes/touches (6'10 wingspan :) )

I know but the knicks most glaring hole is a small forward and thats what most are hoping to acquire from the draft it seems. If we end up with a talented guard or big man thats cool too.

I just don't think we will be in range for an impact big. Their all going top 5. Jaren Jackson Jr has huge upside but he going 6, 7, or at worst 8. Robert Williams has not improved offensively. Carter is no better than Kanter or Willy.
