Knicks should look at Markieff Morris if he drops to #17. NBA body and wouldn't have to worry about scoring too much.

True enough. If NY is sticking it out with Mike D, defensive|rebounding players aren't really going to be needed. A player projected to be like AB however would fit nice into that style of play.

No way he drops that low.

I'm more worried about how any new players will fit into D'Antoni's 8 man rotation, it's very very possible whoever we pick may just rot on the bench anyway.

I don't know about him, I'm torn.

He'd be perfect for our system, but his desire worries me and also the fact that he can be Bargnani #2 is worrisome as well.

He's a fantastic offensive player for a 20 year old, yet his defense is lacking and that's been a problem for the Knicks last season.

Oh I couldn't agree more. D'Antoni usually never plays rookies (3 exceptions are Fields, Joe Johnson and Gallo... and that's b/c they're all rly good) and without any job security D'Antoni isn't going to waste time developing some kid when he could put in a veteran in his place.

That being said, there are a couple of players in our range right now that I could see D'Antoni playing big minutes (like Jimmer, Biyombo, Montiejunas, Faired, Markeiff Morris and some other guys)

He's perfect in offense, but lazy in defense.
Today in Italy play offs Donatas scores 21 in first half (7/8 fgm-a)

The Knicks should forget about need, and pick the best player available. Then they can use the pick plus Billups expirer to get players they want.

Like...I suggested.......Verajao and Sessions.

Motiejunas is not as good as Anthony Randolph.
Knicks should try to draft a PG, team him with Toney Douglas, trade Billups expirer for size.

Varejeo has an ugly contract for a role player.

Trading Anthony Randolph was almost as big a mistake as trading all those picks for Eddy Curry.

It was D'Antoni's call.

Walsh said when he picked 6th in 2008 it was between Randolph and Gallinari, and when he got to acquire AR he was ecstatic.

But D'Antoni didn't play him because he couldn't shoot 3's.

I hope no other team (except maybe the Heat :lol ) get infected with the D'Antoni cancer when we eventually fire him. The guy is as stubborn as they come, can only coach one way, and can't judge talent for sh!t. He's almost as destructive as Larry Brown..

So you're not actually interested in winning, just scoring many points?
