The NY Knicks could find. their Point Guard of the future in this year’s draft

Sharife Cooper – Needless to say, NONE of these guys are going to be starters on Day 1.

Chances are if any point guard is drafted this year then a veteran from any of the previous pages OR Derrick Rose will be the starter while whichever rookie selected comes off the bench.

Cooper is a favorite amongst a lot of Knicks fans and I see why.

I also see why the Knicks shouldn’t take him.

That said, if he’s sitting there at pick 19 or 21, I’d go with his potential upside but I’m not trading up for the undersized, poor-shooting Cooper.

Davion Mitchell – Davion Mitchell isn’t making it down to pick 19, but if he did then sure…take him.

He’s a great defender and a leader on and off the court. The kind of guy you want leading your team.

But, he’s got a number of glaring holes and I’m not entirely too sure why he’s being projected as high as he is.

Recency bias is a helluva thing.

Win a National Title…get drafted in the top 10 of the NBA Draft.

Tre Mann – I like Tre Mann a lot.

If the Knicks took him at 21, I’d be happy with it but if they managed to snag him at 32 I’d be even happier.

He’s more of a combo guard and I feel like his ceiling is similar to that of 6th Man of the Year winner, Jordan Clarkson.

He’s more of a combo guard, but he’s an absolute bucket getter.

If the development staff thinks they can turn him into a true point guard, I’m all for it.
