Oh, the Knicks might suck enough to have a shot at the top 5. I still enjoyed it.
Top 1-3? That's based on luck now.
Team still has to draft competently. Historically they are pretty pedestrian/poor. Not awful. Just never really "hit it out of the park". Mitch is the best value pick so far, but he's no franchise player.
I'd say under Phil/Pills/Mills, it's not looking that good.
Knox? Mediocre at best.
RJ? "Consensus #3 pick", so hard to shame them here. I think a smarter team trades down. The Knicks are never the smarter team.
Still, RJ looks like a high usage, low efficiency player who does exactly nothing above average.
Mitch was a good pick.
Trier was nice for a year.
Dotson a decent JAG player.
KP was good. He's gone anyway, in a wise move.
The Rose/Perry/Perrin/Whiz Kid Scout collective? I'm not impressed so far.
Obi looks dubious.
Quickley is coming across as Toney Douglas 2.0
Passed on Haliburton who would have addressed MULTIPLE areas of need (PG/outside shooting)
Traded all over the place for Toney Douglas 2.0
Didn't use the 33rd pick or whatever it wound up as on someone who can actually shoot.
Didn't have the balls to trade up for LaMelo.
Maybe they'll get next draft right. I doubt it.
