With the NBA Draft set for Thursday night, plenty of reports are swirling about who will do what. The New York Knicks hold four picks total in the draft, including three in the top 32. According to Ian Begley of SNY, the general sentiment around the league is that New York will trade out of one of their two first round picks.
In the days leading up to Thursday’s draft, the Knicks have explored ways to trade up in the first round or trade for a veteran player. The Knicks and Wizards touched base recently on a trade that would have sent Washington’s first-round pick to New York.
ESPN’s Bobby Marks said on Wednesday that he’d be surprised if the Knicks kept both of their first-round picks (19 and 21).
