Let's assume Knicks dont trade down to become a top 4 and every team keeps their slot designation.
Knicks at 11 or 12th pick (Pelicans made playoffs).
I am assuming 1-5 will be some variation of Chet, Jabari, Ivey, Paolo B, and most likely Sharpe? After that it's give or take kind of up in the air?

Who are the players you'd rather have the Knicks avoid and who are your top choices that would most likely fall in the lottery 6-15th pick range?

My players to avoid: Ty, Griffin (injury), Mark Williams.

I don't know enough about Jalen Duren and would probably add him to the Avoid list because of down stream effects on team (they'd be forced to do SOMETHING with Mitch, Noel) but maybe the team knows this and would consider Duren but I just don't know. I'd rather re-sign MitchRob, and have Sims as his backup, rather then wait 2 to 4 years for Duren to get up to speed.

Same with Keegan - doubt he lasts and I don't know where we would get minutes for him having Thibs favoritism Randle, and having fan favorite Obi Toppin.
I Definitely wouldn't Avoid him but doubt he is there at 11.
Same with Johnny Davis - I don't know enough about him, but minutes would be little to none having Knicks FO favoritism to RJ Barretts 35 to 40 min, plus Burks, Grimes, Fournier, and Cam begging for minutes.


The Top player who maybe gone at the 11 pick ....
Bennedict Mathurin - dynamic SG/SF.

High end role player picks :
Dyson Daniels - defender, passer.
Could become a secondary PG challenging McBride, his shooting not there but floater is very decent. Plus good perimeter defender on guards & SF.
Jeremy Sochan
Tari Eason
Malaki Branham
