I'm greatly intrigued by Bol Bol. If we keep the pick, they should consider him given that he is truly a first tier prospect that is undervalued at this time due to injury.

Maybe SAS is right and the Knicks want Garland.


Yeah probably NY. So Lakers go for RJ Barrett?

If Knicks draft Garland, RJ Barrett is the obvious pick for us.

I gotta assume he's going to NY, Chi, or PHX.

Enough with drafting pg’s. Zo just needs another offseason or two to develop his shot. He’s got to learn to shoot however. That’s important otherwise trade him. We do need a veteran backup that can shoot. I thought the rondo signing wasn’t the greatest for that reason. I would’ve preferred they keep IT.

Knicks already had Mudiay, DSJ and Burke. Also, isn't Kyrie suppose to be a Knick?

I've always felt like KPJ was the biggest sleeper in this draft and who I wanted at 11, but with the real possibility of drafting Garland @4, you can't pass that up. He's your prototypical scoring guard like Dame. He's also the perfect fit next to Lonzo in the backcourt. If we strike out on all the big named free agents like the national media is suggesting, rolling out our improved young core w LeBron isnt a bad consolation prize. Offer up De'Andre Jordan a 1 year deal he cant pass up and sign some shooters and lets try it again. (Disclaimer: I do believe we're getting Kawhi)
-------

G: Darius Garland
G: Lonzo Ball
F: Brandon Ingram
F: LeBron James
C: De'Andre Jordan

How do you guys feel with that lineup with a bench consisting of Kuzma, Bullock, Hart, Wagner, Caruso plus Vet minimums

if we strike out on max FA, i'd rather trade ingram/lonzo for beal than waste cap space on jordan. we can then sign a stretch big like vucevic.

PG: garland
SG: beal
SF: lebron
PF: kuzma
C: vucevic

much better shooting in this lineup.

None of those guys are worth passing on another guard for outside of Kyrie who isn't on the team.

Klutch probably has a promise from a lottery team. If it’s the Knicks why work out when you can only hurt your stock. A wise decision but everyone on here with the Klutch hate will try to find something to disparage them

Sorry but that is no big shocker, Ja Morant was going to be number 2 no matter what. Just like Zion was going to be number 1

Well I'm hoping the Knicks pass on Barrett for Garland. I'd love to take RJ

I don't think it happens though.

He can only do so much lol.

Also, If we were to make a trade for Beal, I would move Kuzma before both Lonzo and Ingram.

Not a ton but that's the thing. They are essential to winning championships.

I am very very much with you on that, I hope that the Knicks are Knicks and decide on some random criteria rather than Best Available and go for Garland. RJ would fit so beautifully with this team

Would be funny if we end up sucking for the next 10 years again all because this team doesn't understand how to properly tank.

5 times in the lottery and each time we needed to be selecting higher.

These days I wonder if the Lakers can do anything right smh. Better pray every single night for Kawhi... this #4 doesn't hold much value. The best 3 players will be gone 100% in the top 3. New Orleans don't want this pick or anything to do with us.

Yeah, we need to learn how to tank like the Suns. They won 20 games last season and made out super well last night.
