auburn looked good, but barkley looked pained when they lost.

Jarrett Culver is sucking bad. After having a 5 of 19 game recently, he’s now 0 for 6 in the first half. No thanks, do not need another THJr shooting clone

Also last game Culver was 3 of 12. He had only 3 points until the last 2 mins of the game

This Zion is head above the rest and thus the next tier is more even. Ja Morant is the obvious flavor for no. 2.

Agree that the talent level has a big drop after Zion. Disagree that Ja should be number 2. Think Barrett can be elite and is still a better prospect. Specially when you look at the type of players Ja competed against. If we don't get the first two picks ,highly unlikely, I would not mind the Knicks trading it for quantity. Like Darius Garland, Deandre hunter,
kZ opala, Luguentz dort

Also curious to see what happens with Bol Bol. Forgotten due to injury but he was considered one of top players coming out of HS. Feeling is his stock will grow during workouts.

I don't know how it happened, but i watched all of last nights game and it was tremendous. Both of those teams could probably beat the knicks!

I hope we end up finding talent with our picks. We need so much.

his last two games were REALLY disappointing on offense. Still a great defensive player but Hunter really established himself as a tier above Culver IMO

I get the hype. We love NCAA hype. He'll be vetted out. measured, weighted and worked out.
Same for Reddish, Barret, Langford, Morant.
That Virginia team was big, could shoot, played defense and are the champs!!!
Reddish had some big shots, defense and rebounds in the season. Zions shadow blocked out the sun.
Time will tell. We'll have no worse than 5th. Someone will make a mistake, hope its not us!!!

Yeah. I don’t watch much college ball before the tournament. I have been hearing guys rave about Cukver but he did not have a good tournament. I have to think his stock dropped a bit.

no, I thought Culver had a good tournament but just sort of lousy at the end. Culver was a 3* recruit. He struggled against athletes. I do not want to crush Culver but I would never draft him unless he fell to the second, which I don't think has a chance in hell of happening

If the Knicks draft Reddish at 5, I’ll have trust in their decision but that would still be a super scary pick to make.

Title odds are 200:1. So you're saying there's a chance!

Apparently Reddish was courtside at the Lakers game the other night, with Rich Paul. I’m honestly kind of hoping Reddish, for his own sake, refrains from signing any agent and stays another season at Duke. His game needs A LOT of fine tuning.

look at it from his prospective: fine tuning for a year (with a decent chance at slipping or getting hurt or getting really exposed) or guaranteed millions over 3+ years. Frank has been painfully awful over the past year and still will net ~$12M over his first 3 years.

I am sure he would fine tune his bank account just like the rest of us

I get that part but if he scares NBA teams the way he scares some of us, then do you think it’s possible he ends up slipping to the second round the way Carlos Boozer did? That seems unlikely but still possible. He takes the risk of entering the draft this year possibly slipping to a pretty low position and losing a lot of money. Or he stays at Duke, has a chance to become the man for a season, with a more seasoned Tre Jones by his side, and raise his stock.

Slipping and falling and getting hurt is always a risk.

There's no chance he stays at Duke and he shouldn't. He's a terrible draft prospect and if the Knicks draft him I'll be ****ing livid but the combination of his HS hype and this being a terrible draft means he's going to get picked top 10 or even top 5. If he goes back to school and has another season like this past one his draft stock is going to ****ing tank.

Now the joy of my world is in Zion How beautiful if nothing more Than to wait at Zion's door I've never been in love like this before Now let me pray to keep you from The perils that will surely come

Think Reddish represents most of the class this year. Guys that just don't have anything special yet some see "blind potential. I am hoping they trade the pick. Other than Zion amd Barrett, dont see anyone worth a top 5 pick. And if anyone thinks we are getting the top pick with just 14% chance, they dont know the Knicks.

Trading the pick is tough because you just don't know what free agency brings. I'd say yes to a trade that stabilizes the roster for two max players but the draft comes before free agency. Zion is a no brainer. After that it gets more thought provoking. There are cap considerations too. Move Frank frees up 5 mil but for what? Not if you bring back salary.
The pick and frank could yield a nice player of starting quality but how does it get done unless you know for sure who's coming.

Anyone have any proposals than the open concept of "Nobody interests me but it will interest another team to make a deal"?
