The fact that the Knicks are said to have interest in both Charles Jenkins and Josh Selby is a bit sickening.
I mean, did anyone else watch the Knicks get eaten alive in the paint this year? The team started players such as Ronny Turiaf, Timofey Mozgov, Jared Jeffries and Shelden Williams at center during both the regular season and the playoffs.
Although this draft seems to lack any dominant bigs, there is still some value to be found. Yes, the team might need a point guard of the future, but is Selby or Jenkins really the answer? Selby was terrible during his one year at Kansas, while Jenkins, although talented and mature, didn't exactly play against the best competition at Hofstra.
I understand the argument for a point guard, but not these players, or any other players at the position in this draft, for that matter. Besides, if the Knicks are able to land Chris Paul next summer, he would obviously become their point guard of the future.
What the Knicks need is an athletic big man who can defend the rim, block shots and crash the glass.
Markieff Morris would be perfect for this team.
Not only can he do all those things, but he is also a very skilled offensive player as well. While not a true center, at 6'10", Markieff would be a great addition to the Knicks' frontcourt.
