The Knicks need depth up front as well at the 5 and frankly there weren’t any NBA ready centers there in my opinion. The Knicks scouting department has been pretty tight-lipped recently so it’s hard to get a read on what their draft decisions will be moving forward but as usual we will be on top of the process as the draft approaches.
One tidbit I can tell you that I’ve heard is that they are really big fans of Syracuse’s Michael Carter-Williams, who should be gone well in advance of when they pick. But they have him atop their big board. They also, I’m told, like another Syracuse player, James Southerland, and his ability to stretch the floor with range at 6’8. Southerland passed on competing at Portsmouth but will be in at the next camp in Chicago.
