With the NBA draft about two weeks away, there is still a big question about who the Knicks will select with their eighth pick.

The Knicks are in desperate need of a point guard or a center, however there are no centers in the draft besides Thabeet, worthy of drafting with the eighth pick. Many sources are now saying Stephen Curry will not be on the board when the Knicks make their selection, as he may be taken by Washington or Minnesota. If that is the case then the Knicks need to look for plan B:

1)Rumors are going around the Knicks may select Ohio State Center BJ Mullins with the eighth pick. If that is the case, then they should just write off the 2009 season, because that will be a waste.

2) The second option is Brandon Jennings. He has been trying to hype this year's draft; he better hope his play backs up his mouth. The Knicks need a point guard and he may be the best point guard on the board when they go to select.

3) Then there is Jonny Flynn. I believe Flynn is the second best point guard after Eric Maynor; however with not such a big name, Maynor will not be selected by the Knicks eighth. However, Flynn could possibly be their pick. If the Knicks select Flynn they will get a hard working, aggressive, point guard who can ignite the Garden crowd.

With the three options I've listed, the best option in my opinion, is the last one to draft Flynn. He is a good player and could make a difference for the Knicks.
