If there’s ever been a year to rig the lottery, this is it. Each of the top-two picks know exactly where they want to be: former Washington point guard Markelle Fultz with the New York Knicks and former UCLA point guard Lonzo Ball with the Los Angeles Lakers. Fultz made his wishes known Sunday, telling the New York Post it “would be amazing,” if the Knicks had a chance to draft him. It’s unlikely the Knicks get that chance — they currently hold a mere 6.3 percent chance at the top pick with a 21.5 percent shot of sliding into the top-3. But if they do, Fultz is exactly the type of player they need.
