In the next draft, the Knicks will have the chance to get a player who makes a difference by adding young talents to their team. For new team leader Leon Rose, this summer’s selection will be important for the future of the franchise.
Here is the latest draft of the NBA as reported by the New York Post.
No. 6, New York Knicks: Tyrese Haliburton, PG, Iowa State
The Knicks will have a 9% chance of winning the lottery. At no. 6, the Knicks are looking at a scorecard and Haliburton checks the most squares with Ball off the board. It is not even one and done. The second year of Iowa State has a high IQ, a good feeling for the game, he is a director and his percentage of career 3-point shots is 43 percent. He has a good pick-and-roll feel, a nice touch on his float and has a good defensive instinct at 6-5 – with a wingspan of 6-7 ¹ / ₂.
Last season Haliburton averaged 15.2 points, 5.9 rebounds and 6.5 assists per game for the state of Iowa.
