Knicks’ GM Scott Perry said that the club is looking to draft the best player available, regardless of position.
“Anytime you have an opportunity to improve your team, it is important,’’ Perry said. “I am confident we will be able to find a prospect who can help our team regardless of where we pick.” As the ninth seed, the Knicks have a 6.1 percent chance of landing in the top three but the likeliest scenario is that they stay put (81 percent probability). The team has gaping holes in their roster and a small forward would be the ideal pick but the position may not matter if the available player’s talent level is considerably higher.
