The regular season is still in full swing with two months of games left to play, but the New York Knicks are already looking ahead. Having recently chosen Leon Rose as their new president of basketball operations, the team has begun preparations for the NBA Draft. At the moment, they appear to be looking in a very specific direction.
The Knicks (17-38) are currently in line to pick fifth, through their own selection, and 25th, with a pick acquired from the Los Angeles Clippers. Their targets with those picks are scoring guards, according to Marc Berman of the New York Post. Ideally, they would land a point guard of the future with their own high lottery pick and a 3-point shooter with the selection coming from the Clippers.
