The Knicks possess the eighth pick in the draft and have scheduled a workout with Donovan Mitchell.
It looks as if the Knicks are keen on taking a guard to pair with Kristaps Porzingis in this talented draft. Malik Monk projects to be available to them, but the Knicks want to explore all possibilities. Mitchell shot a decent 35.4 percent from beyond the arc last season, but defense is his selling point and he averaged 2.1 swipes a game. The Knicks hit a home run with the Porzingis pick and will need to strike gold again in a loaded draft class to bring their franchise back into the playoff picture.
