Heading into the 2012 NBA Draft, the New York Knicks only have their second-round draft pick. The Houston Rockets own the Knicks first-round pick, which they received when the Knicks traded for Tracy McGrady back in 2010.
The New York Knicks have done a great job in recent years of finding talent late in the draft. Just two years ago, they drafted Landry Fields out of Stanford in the second round and he instantly became their starting shooting guard.
I believe due to their abundance of guards on the roster, the Knicks will target big men with their only pick in this year’s draft. Hopefully they will be able to find one who can come in and play solid defense and rebound when Amar’e Stoudemire or Tyson Chandler needs a breather.
Here are the top five prospects I believe the Knicks should target in the 2012 NBA Draft.
