The New York Knicks have three 2024 NBA Draft picks, and the front office will decide whether to keep them. ESPN and Yahoo Sports reported that the Knicks are exploring trades for their first-round picks, while SNY's Ian Begley reported that there is "internal concern" about the team's depth.

The Knicks have back-to-back first-round picks (Nos. 24 and 25). The top talent will be long off the board by then, but New York has had success with late first-round picks (i.e., Immanuel Quickley and Quentin Grimes).

In the Associated Press's latest mock draft, John Marshall has the Knicks selecting Duke's Kyle Filipowski with the No. 24 pick. The forward/center averaged 16.4 points, 8.3 rebounds, 2.8 assists, and 1.5 blocks per game in his second and final season as a Blue Devil. He shot 50.5% from the field and 34.8% from three on an average of 3.1 attempts per game.

" The sturdy 6-11 center may not be an elite rim protector nor a consistent 3-pointer shooter, but he has good footwork and plays hard. The Knicks had a solid run into the second round of the playoffs and Filipowski could be another piece to help push them deeper"

If the six-foot-eleven New York native is still on the board when the team makes its pick, he's the kind of player the Knicks should be interested in. He has the tools to be a successful NBA player, and could have a significant role within a couple of years.
