The Knicks have picks No. 44 and 58 and may be willing to trade them both to move up in the second round, perhaps to select rumored target Josh Hart as ESPN’s Ian Begley suggests.
The Knicks have other, more important irons in the fire at the moment but they’ve emerged as big fans of the Villanova senior. He’s projected to go somewhere in the early second round but could conceivably be on the board when pick No. 44 rolls around, though the Knicks might not want to take that chance. Hart played shooting guard in college but could emerge as a combo guy in the pros.
