There is not going to be a consensus "star" at pick 24. We could use a point guard, but the likes of Schroeder and Larkin, and, of course, Burke, Carter-Williams and McCollum, will be long gone. What we could get at 24 is not likely to be different from what we could get with a purchased second rounder. We could also use a defensive power-forward. I think we should look for the high-risk, high-reward player even if he is not immediately likely to make an impact. Tony Mitchell is perhaps one of them. Others are Giannis Adetokunbo (that is one of the spellings I have seen) and Lucas Nogueira.
They are bringing in Whitey a good to great defender with Muscala arguably the best scoring big man in the draft.... I am hoping Muscala win's. Those post moves are amazing.... imagine what working with the dream early could turn that kid into? Also I think he could play PF alongside Chandler and if they reintergrate Amare into the starting lineup he can play center possibly alongside Amare.... This is the first workout schedule I've seen where two guys analyst believe are possible first rounder will workout for the Knicks.....
oh.. remind me... smartless.. what assets do we have that will allow us to trade up???.. shumpet????... i wouldnt give him up to trade up.... only a fool would....like i said.. if we cant get dieng at 24.. after that... i c a major drop off... i'd gamble on wolters..like i said before.. but outside of that...not much of a differnce between the talent in the late first round to mid second....so lets stop dreaming..i think we been down this road before....#facts
Draft picks don't hold that much value, especially in the 20s teams have traded for draft picks just for money.
Knicks have a lot of assets since their a top 3-4 team in the East. This isn't the Charlotte Bobcats or Isiah Knicks, we have good players.
Who said they're trading Shumpert? You're an idiot.
You see a major drop off because you haven't done your research. You can't even dream because you brain is fill with nothing. Wolters is the only prospect you can think of? Get out of this thread.
You can't even spell difference....infact, you type like a fat guy who just orgasmed off of eating a cinnabon...recovering from your orgasm and come to this forum and correct your paragraph. It's poorly spelled and you make no sense.
This isn't twitter, you can't hashtag words, you imbecile.
I'm officially on the Ricky Ledo bandwagon. If we can take Muscala at 24 and buy or trade for a pick and get Ledo, i would be ecstatic.
On the defensive end, things were somewhat of a mixed bag for Ledo, not unlike what we observed the last time we saw him, but the highs were much higher this time, as he showed multiple prolonged flashes of high focus, high effort, and strong vocal leadership with his teammates. He's capable of being a very good defender both on and off the ball, and certainly is at times, but there are still times when he can get frustrated and not put in the effort on this end of the court, particularly when things aren't going well for him offensively.

From what i've read he has the potential to be a good defender with a little bit off work. I've also read a lot of scouts say he's the best natural scorer in the draft. If you watch his videos you can tell he's very skilled offensively. Good handles,good shot, and there's even talk of him playing some point because he's such a good shot creator for others. If it wasn't for his attitude he's be getting taken a lot earlier. I personally would take him over Jr.
Here's a video of him going up against Wall like a year ago. You can tell his game is gonna translate well to the NBA game.
