The Southpaw attack, a second-round pick in 2019, is no longer a lock to make the list as the Knicks have 17 legitimate candidates for 15 slots.

This is a giant season for Knox, whose confidence has returned in his second campaign. Former coaches David Fizdale and Mike Miller don’t trust him to start because of his defensive skills and low pitch. After an average of 6.4 points, the 2018 lottery selection is the most important project for new assistant Kenny Payne, who coached him in Kentucky.

SG, Age: 23, 6’2 ″, £ 195
The Seton Hall superstar went unwritten. His lack of height for a guard rifle is the concern, but it is a dynamic marker (17.5 career average).
