Listening to Bill Simmons' podcast and he brought up the idea.

Buddy Hield to me would be a better convo starter but I think I’d pass.

Bill Simmons also brought up something a few people around here haven't paid close attention to:

Mikal will be turn 22 in 2 months.
Knox will turn 22 in 3 years.

Don't you think Knox will be better at 22 than Mikal?

Both Bill Simmons and Kevin O'Connor say Knox will be better at 22 than Mikal at 22 years old.

21-45 should have some intriguing guys there for the taking. I hope we somehow get another pick. At least. He’s definiteky a guy we should have squarely on the radar.

Just can't seem to shake that man.

Also, during one of Fizdale's interviews after being fired he was gushing over Trae Young. :lol:

There’s a very real chance the Kings would take Michael Porter Jr. at No. 2, but it’s unclear how the canceling of the Friday workout in Chicago might impact the process. They want more intel on medical and another look. Teams are being told that the workout will be rescheduled.

Ray Spalding PF from Louisville is a really interesting guy I think in the 2nd. Idk if he's someone necessarily I would take with our early 2nd round pick, because I think there will be some guys that fall into our lap there. That being said if we could acquire another pick in the 2nd st least, he would be someone I would be very interested in.

He's 6'10 with a 7'4.75" wing span. He's a pretty damn athletic big who looks like he has a pretty good shooting stroke. When I watched Louisville he was more of a shot blocker and dunker, but I've watched some videos lately of him and he has a pretty good shooting stroke. I think he would be a nice stretch 4 option and could be a small ball 5. We could use some athleticism at that area.

I'm not sure if he has been talked about at all, but I think he is someone worth checking out. We should looking for more athletic big men who have a solid wing span in my opinion.

C- OAK -$3
PF - LEE - $2
SF - WILSON - $1
SG - HOUSTON - $5
PG - MARBURY - $4

I'd roll with this lineup if all were in their primes as Knicks, I think they'd do well in today's small ball NBA.

If porter goes 2nd then doncic and bagley just go 3/4

We’re still picking two of young, Bridges or Sexton

Im loving all this Mikal dropping down draft boards noise ive been seeing lately. Makes it more likely he drops to us. Wouldnt be shocked if its all BS though.

Shows me Mikal has a great work ethic in which he improves part of his game every offseason. I expect him to bring the same work ethic with him to the NBA/Knicks. See him improving in the future too. Knox being young alone doesn't tell me a whole lot about future projection.
