Marc Berman of the NY Post is reporting that the Knicks are seriously mulling trading back in the draft, unless big man James Wiseman or point guard LaMelo Ball fall back to the eighth spot.
The Knicks seem to be high on Ball and Wiseman while they haven’t been as excited yet with any other prospect in what appears to be a consensus weak draft. It is a little surprising that New York is after Wiseman considering they have center Mitchell Robinson, but the big man didn’t participate in the recent individual workouts for personal reasons. Teams right behind the Knicks are the Wizards (9), the Suns (10), the Spurs (11), the Kings (12), the Pelicans (13), the Celtics (14) and the Magic (15). Look for more rumors to come up as we approach this year’s draft night.
