With the NBA draft quickly approaching here are some things we can expect the Knicks to do. The Knicks have the 11th pick in this year’s draft but are apparently trying to trade up and draft a guard in the top five. People around the league have been saying that they are eyeing point guard from Purdue Jaden Ivey. If the Knicks don’t trade up, they most likely won’t have the opportunity to pick Ivey who is expected to go in the top five. It will be interesting to see what the Knicks try to do come draft day. This offseason the Knicks will try to do whatever they can to get a point guard whether it’s in free agency or the draft, but New York knows that they desperately need one. The Knicks options in free agency include Jalen Brunson, and possibly a trade for Utah Jazz star guard Donovan Mitchell. The Knicks hired Jalen Brunson’s dad Rick Brunson as an assistant coach so that could help their recruitment of Jalen who will have many suitors after his great season with the Mavericks. The Pacers, Pelicans, and Knicks have shown the most interest in prying away the talented guard from Dallas. We’ll see what the Knicks do in Free agency and the draft but no matter what they need to come away from this offseason with a point guard.
