2011 NBA Draft: Are the New York Knicks Trying to Trade Up for Jimmer Fredette?
There is plenty of buzz about where the draft's most talked-about NBA draft prospect, Jimmer Fredette, will land on Thursday night.
Adding to the laundry list of teams interested in Fredette' services are the New York Knicks. ESPN's Chad Ford reported yesterday that the Knicks were interested in moving up from the No.17 slot to take the BYU guard.
However, in the last 24 hours, the New York Post reported that the team would like to draft Fredette, but not at the cost of dealing their young stars Landry Fields and Toney Douglas.
There is talk about Jimmer Fredette being drafted at high as ninth overall and as low as the Knicks at No.17 overall.
If the Knicks are not willing to deal one of those guards then they will have to hope that Fredette slips to them at No.17. This does not appear likely as the hometown Utah Jazz draft at No.12 and Jazz fans are calling for the team to draft Fredette. Keep in mind, they don't have a second round pick in 2011 because of the Carmelo Anthony trade.
Barring a drastic change in the next few days, it appears that the Knicks will be staying put with their draft slot.
