NY Knicks: Power Ranking the Upside of the Young Blood on the Roster

Even though the Knicks have traded away most of their drafted players in order to either clear up cap space or acquire Carmelo Anthony, they still have done a pretty good job of keeping some young talent on their roster.

From 2007-2009, the Knicks drafted three players in the first round, Wilson Chandler, Danilo Gallinari and Jordan Hill.

Both Chandler and Gallinari were part of the package the Knicks sent to Denver for Melo and Hill was traded to Houston so the Knicks could acquire Tracy McGrady, a large expiring contract at the time.

Due to these trades, the Knicks have had to find other ways to bring young players to their roster to compliment their newly acquired stars.

They have done a great job of finding underrated players in the second round of the draft or via the waiver wire.

Here are my power rankings for all of the current players on the Knicks with two years of NBA experience or less.
