2016 NBA Draft: New York Knicks Should Target These Second Round Prospects

Isaiah Whitehead, SG, Seton Hall Pirates

  • 21 yrs. old
  • 6’5″, 210 lbs.
  • Season Stats: 18.2 PPG, 3.6 RPG, 5.1 APG, 20.6 PER

Isaiah Whitehead will be an immediate threat from behind the 3-point line and in fast break situations.

However, he must improve his decision-making.

Whitehead was terribly inefficient while at Seton Hall. He led the Big East with a usage percentage of 31.6%, averaged 4.5 turnovers per 40 minutes, and shot a dreadful 39% on two point attempts.

Pretty unbelievable considering his career three-point (35.9%) and free-throw percentages (75.7%).

Per SNY.tv, He worked out for the Knicks’ team president Phil Jackson and head coach Jeff Hornacek. It’s hard to believe that Whitehead can handle the triangle, but he would be a help in Hornacek’s offense.
