A rumor that has been gaining steam is that the Knicks will select [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] with their 8th pick. We've received word that there could be truth to this from inside sources claiming that Curry chose to put his name into the draft this year based on the Knicks assuring Curry that they would use their lottery selection to draft him.
Obviously a lot could happen between now and the draft. The Knicks could always win the lottery (they're not using a top 3 pick on him) or trade their pick.
But it appears to be a legitimate possibility that if the Knicks have the 8th pick on draft night they will use it on Curry. Curry's game would fit extremely well in Mike D'Antoni's wide open style and his scoring ability would be enhanced.

This is if we stay at the 8th pick or fall lower people. Its also an "if" promise. "If" Somebody doesn't slip to us.. "If" we don't make a trade before hand. "If" we don't work out somebody in the next month that impresses us.
People need to relax these promise articles always come out this time of year i wouln't worry to much about it. And if were at the 8th pick and players like Thabeet, Blake, Rubio, and Harden are off the board i could live with Steph Curry.
I know it most likely would never happen but if you had Harrington, Curry, and Gallinari on the floor spreading the opposing teams defense out Eddy Curry could dominate games. Thats if he ever got into shape. Which like i said is doubtful.
Maynor is projected to go anywhere from 18-20 in the Hoopshype/NBA Draft Express Mock Draft, and Chad Ford had him going as high as 10 2 weeks ago. I say if we slide all the way down to 20 we better be getting a shot blocker in return. If he slid to 21 and we made a deal w/ NO to bring Chandler to NY for a contract and our 8th pick, I'd be cool with that.
