Knicks select Obi Toppin with pick no. 8 in the 2020 NBA Draft

The Knicks remained at number 8 and picked Dayton’s Obi Toppin.

In Toppin, they get a player widely regarded as the best offensive striker in college basketball. Toppin, a New York native, was poor on the defensive side, so it will be interesting to see how head coach Tom Thibodeau and his development staff can help Toppin on that side of the pitch.

Overwhelmed with emotion shortly after being selected, Toppin called the choice a “blessing” while thanking his parents, teammates and coaches.
