The New York Knicks have interviewed forward Steven Enoch in prep of the 2020 NBA Draft.
The New York Knicks led by new scouting guru Walt Perrin have conducted interviews via Zoom with several college prospects ahead of the 2020 NBA Draft that was re-scheduled to October. The latest name to emerge as being interviewed is Louisville center Steven Enoch, according to Adam Zagoria.
The Norwalk, Connecticut native spent his first two years of college at UConn before transferring to Louisville, where he has thrived the past two seasons. He tested the draft waters last summer, but ultimately returned for his senior year in the ACC. He has interviewed with 23 teams in prep of the draft.
Steven Enoch could be an undrafted player to watch.
A 6-foot-10 big man who can both shoot and score in the post, Enoch could be an intriguing undrafted prospect. He averaged 9.5 points and 5.6 rebounds this past season, while shooting 54.1% from the field. He scored in double figures in 12 of the last 22 games he played at Louisville, as he continued to improve his post moves and pick-and-roll ability.
The Knicks also interviewed Enoch’s Louisville teammate Jordan Nwora.
New York has three picks in the upcoming draft: they will select in the lottery, as well as the late first round with a pick they obtained in the Marcus Morris trade last February; and also in the early second round using a pick acquired from Charlotte in the Willy Hernangomez trade.
It has been reported that the Knicks are searching for a lead guard at the top of the draft, with LaMelo Ball pegged as their top point guard. Of course, a lot can change over the next several months as New York’s new front office of scouts continues to learn more about the prospects that will be available.
The Knicks are currently in the process of selecting a full-time head coach. It is expected they will make their decision by the end of July.
