New York Knicks

The New York Knicks will have a chance at a top prospect in the 2017 NBA Draft. We evaluated some of their potential targets.

One of the few positives to come out of this season for the New York Knicks is that they’ll have a chance at one of the top prospects in the 2017 NBA Draft.

The Knicks will have a gaping hole on the depth chart at the point guard spot this summer (shocker), and their first option to fill that hole should be the draft. A top-ten selection should net them one of the top prospects.

Drafting one of the potentially franchise-changing point guards, it would impact the way New York could approach free agency. While point guard should be the No. 1 priority, if the elite prospects are all off the board the Knicks should go with the best player available.

When you’re as bad as the Knicks, you can never have too much talent. No matter the position.
