    Keon Johnson at 21. I like the pick. Arguably best athlete in draft. Can make plays on both ends. Canít shoot, but he can do a lot of other things at a lottery pick caliber level.

    Keon dealt to LAC for 25th pick and future 1st.

    Looks like PG from WVU our target, me guess

    The Knicks FO sold out the 2 first rounders for $$$ !!!

    The got Grimes. Landry Field 3&D type, with more upside. Probably looking at PG from WVU with next pick. 2 defensive minded work horses who Thibbs can mold.

    Wsup .. McBride cant be the only player we worked out ???
    Quentin Grimes !!!
    Our Knicks Summer-League games maybe suspect without Obi & IQ .. we need a young strong 6.7 SF not afraid of scoring inside baskets.

    Trust the process I guess. Keep turning picks into more picks while still adding players you can use. Grimes can shoot and play D. Fits a need. Doesnít look like anything huge is coming out of this draft for us. Glad our front office didnít panic though and overpay to try to make a splash with nothing more than a B tier prospect.

    A future CHA 1st a better asset, if NyK want to trade for a player this summer, than taking a player at 19.

    Some notes on Quentin Grimes:

    - one of only 2 NCAA players who ranked in the top 10 in both offensive and defensive rating this last season

    - one of only 5 NCAA players who shot over 40% on over 200 attempts from 3 this last season

    - heís being selected at pick #25 by the same front office who hit big with Immanuel Quickley at #25 last draft

    Iím liking this pick more and more.

    Maybe most important factor in the Grimes pick was that he was a guy that Thibodeau wanted, reportedly. Thibodeau knows what players will succeed in his game plans.

    LOL. Knicks take Jeremiah Robinson-Earl who becomes the 3rd player they draft tonight that will be traded. JRE will be traded to OKC. No idea what Knicks will get back.

    Woj reporting that OKC traded us picks 34 and 36 for taking Robinson-Earl for them at 32. Our front office sure knows how to add picks to the stack.

    What I like about Grimes is that he was a highly touted McDonalds All American who flopped his freshman year at Kansas. He rebounded from that bad experience and used what he learn to lead Houston to Final 4 Appearance. Hopefully, he can replace ABís role. Donít expect a much from him though.

    We take Rokas Jokubaitis with pick 34. I literally got nothing to say on this one.

    Apparently he is a Goran Dragic type player. I guess thatís good.

    Jokubaitis apparently is a 20-year-old draft and stash. Going to keep playing overseas at least 1 more season reportedly.

    Was this a move to save cap space?

    Itís all good. We get Miles McBride at 36. Nice.

    I love this pick. Heís a point guard who plays defense. Good mid range game. Short but decent length.

    Another pick where Thibodeau wanted the player so front office made it happen.
