One of the Knicks‘ goals for next season is to further enhance Mitchell Robinson‘s great potential. Selecting Daniel Oturu, the Knicks could achieve this goal.
In the 2019-2020 period, Oturu scored an average of 20.1 points, 11.3 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 2.5 blocks per game, shooting 56.3% from the field and 70.7% from the line free throw, 61.5% as a freshman.
If Oturu can legitimize his outside throw without compromising his inner worth, it could be an important resource for the Knicks. It’s also obvious that he and Robinson can play next to each other, with Robinson’s versatility and Oturu’s blocking of shots that blends well.
The goal could be to find a backup, but pursuing Oturu can provide the Knicks with something even bigger: a real complement for a main collaborator.
