He is a well-balanced prospect and will climb up from his late first/ early second round projection. He’s someone we could really use on the roster as a 3/4 combo. He reminds a little of cam Johnson if he hits his ceiling at the nba level. Good player. I’d love to actually use both first round picks. Come out with him and a backup PG prospect (Kolek, McCain, or less likely Carter.)

he's my guy, but man that DAL pick is dropping. they have won 9 of 10

Not a huge fan of his mocks because they are always very unrealistic. I still remember him insisting Killian Hayes would be the best prospect and was pumping him up as the number one pick in every mock. Seems like stephon castle might be his new guy.

If Rokas is coming over we may not even need to make any picks, but I hope we make at least one and get Da Silva.

Kel Ware is also interesting, especially if we eventually trade Mitch and or don't resign Precious.

Right about now is a perfect time for Dallas to go into 5 game losing streak.

Yeah, this is more of ranking of his highest graded players than a realistic draft. That said, I'd be happy with Tyler Smith, Klintman or Shannon jr. I'm interested to see how the league's recent zag to defense impacts the stocks of Clingan and Edey.

Not to mention all the internationals at the top of the draft, got to spread them out more too

So a name that’s starting to climb a bit (Bleacher Report has him first round in the latest mock) is Harrison Ingram from UNC. I am assuming the Knicks draft players this year. Meaning this draft doesn’t hold a ton of value to move a pick for a future first, or combining picks to move up. That can always change but most likely I see the Knicks drafting players to restock the prospect pool, and any trades would be similar to the Grimes/ Deuce draft.

As for Ingram, he’s a guy who can provide real depth for the knicks at the 3 and 4. He can hit open shots and defend both positions. He’s a solid passer and can post up smaller defenders, so hiding a weaker defender on him isn’t there. He’s a really good rebounder. He doesn’t have a perfect current nba comp but he’s a bit like Royce O’Neale. I like him a lot for this team because as we currently look at a team missing Randle and OG, this team can use a solid combo forward that can make open shots and defend.

with Randle and OG injuries we really need to draft a PF/SF. Da Silva fits that bill but I'm sure our FO knows best.

I agree, especially if we can bring over the Euro stash Rokas as pg/sg. Just watching the clips that kid Knecht looks good too.

Da Silva and Rokas sounds like a great and cheap offseason.

Yes that would be a good pair. Da Silva might go a little too high for us. That Dallas pick was hopeful but they are winning too much. If Da Silva becomes out of reach, Ingram or McCullar are 2 great options. McCullar is more of a Josh Hart do-everything wing, and Ingram is more traditional 3&D plus rebounding. Da Silva would be pretty ideal though.
