For the first time, in a long time, I am not excited whatsoever for the NBA Draft Lottery as a NY Knicks fan but I certainly cannot wait until July 29th which is when the 2021 NBA Draft is set to take place.

I’m not excited for the lottery because of course, the Knicks are likely to be nowhere near the top-14 picks.

With 4 draft selections, two being in the first round and two in the 2nd, surely there will be a ton of movement by the Knicks’ front office.

I recently spoke about the Knicks’ potential approach to this draft on my most recent podcast and concluded that the team is unlikely to come out of this draft with more than 2 players at most.

This draft in specific is viewed by many to have some franchise-altering talents such as Cade Cunningham, Jalen Green, Jonathan Kuminga, and so on.

While it would be incredibly exciting if the Knicks were able to snag one of those names, the beautiful part about this draft is that it’s not just top-heavy…there are solid talents going all the way into the middle of the 2nd round.

My colleague Austin here at Daily Knicks discussed a few excellent fits for the Knicks in the upcoming draft assuming they actually use more than 1 or 2 of their picks.

The 2021 NBA Draft will be an interesting one for the NY Knicks!

But here, we’re going to be discussing some players the Knicks could realistically grab where they’re projected to be selecting along with some guys that they may have to trade up for.

We’re gonna be taking a deep dive on some of the stars playing in this weekend’s Final 4 of the March Madness tournament.

Like most years, this one had some obvious winners and some puzzling losers.

Teams like Baylor, Houston, and Gonzaga were highly ranked and pretty much a lock to make it deep into the tourney.

The most shocking appearance is the UCLA Bruins, who came into March ranked #11 and have made it to the Final 4 due to some superb play by some key players.

Here I’ll be going over some players in the NCAA Final 4 that Knicks fans should pay close attention to.
