Donnie Walsh struck out in the 2009 NBA Draft by taking Jordan Hill over the plethora of point guards available. However, trade rumors are surfacing as of late that Walsh is attempting to acquire one of the point guards he did not take in that draft.
That point guard is Jonny Flynn.
Whether or not Flynn is the answer for the Knicks has yet to be determined since he has yet to perform well enough to make him worthy of being a sixth overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft.
The player the Timberwolves would like back for him would be Knicks combo guard Toney Douglas. Douglas has become a fan favorite due to his abilities to defend the perimeter and knock down open three-pointers.
Although Douglas has played well in the aforementioned areas, he has struggled to transition to a true point guard, which is what the team ultimately needs. The Knicks' main objective now must be to surround Amar'e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony with players who can collaborate with them and help the team reach its goal of winning an NBA Championship.
For the short time Flynn has been in the NBA, he has been entirely enigmatic. The Knicks can only hope that a change of scenery will help the young, charismatic guard bring his game to a level that made him worthy of a top-10 selection back in 2009.
