Since the Knicks were in the middle of all the league's bad teams, they will probably draft between the 6th and 12th picks.
There is a lot of great talent exiting the college game and entering the NBA, and here is who should be on the Knick's radar when the draft comes around.
Throughout the entire 2008-2009 season, it was noticeable the Knicks needed a dominant big man, badly.
Although David Lee is the workhorse of the team, he is not a typical NBA center and would be a much better player if he was at the power forward position full-time.
Aldrich would be a very good choice to replace Lee at the center position.
Aldrich is a big guy who can body himself up with the best of them. He is very powerful when he is grabbing rebounds and can be very productive in the paint.
New York also needs help in the paint on the defensive end. Aldrich can provide an intimidating presence and would make guards and forwards think twice before driving to the lane.
Stephen Curry—Point Guard—Davidson
In the eyes of many critics throughout the NBA, many of them say that Duhon is a back up point guard. Duhon provided a lot for the Knicks this year, but started to break down and was physically drained down the stretch.
He can become more valuable and would get more rest if the Knicks could draft Curry, one of the top scorers in all of college basketball.
Curry did play most of the time at the shooting guard position at Davidson, but is projected to make the transition to point guard in the NBA.
Now the Knicks, who currently have point guards Nate Robinson, along with Duhon on the depth chart, would have to make some changes on the roster if the team decides to draft Curry so everyone can get valuable playing time.
If Curry does get drafted by the Knicks, he would be a dominant point guard for the future and would provide a huge spark for the team.
James Harden—Shooting Guard—Arizona State
When you think of the Knicks, you think about how many scorers this team has.
Players like Al Harrington, Larry Hughes, and Wilson Chandler could break out for 30 points on any given night.
Unfortunately, that doesn't usually happen for this team and players just get into horrific slumps.
Harden can be that top scorer, high intensity guy the Knicks need and are looking for.
The best part about Harden is he is very big for a shooting guard. This means he can shoot from anywhere on the court and still be very productive.
Along with Curry, Harden was one of the nation's top scorers and definitely has the ability to bring that talent to the professional level.
