Knicks To Select Dontas Montiejunas
 
D'Antoni wants this guy. And as usual Walsh will do whatever Mike D'Antoni asks him to do (e.g. Jordan Hill :facepalm)

Anyone euro fans know about this guy? Supposedly he's like Bargnani?


Let's hope he's not the next Tskishvilli (sp?)

Donatas Motiejunas > Bargnani.

What's with these horrible NBA comparisons?

Well even if he was just = to Bargnani I'd be extremely pleased with the pick (on the Knicks).

It'd be interesting, we could put Amare at the 5 for stretches and throw Dontas in at the 4 to draw out the opposing teams power foward.

Can he actually handle the ball or is he like Pat Garrity/Raef LaFrentz

I hope so... as much as we need a back up PG and C, this guy is legit and really become a good player if he hits the weight room. (And considering the talent level of this draft, is there too much difference from someone we get in the second round via bought pick than at #17?)

But I can't see him falling out of the lottery.

nbadraft.net has him at #16, I don't think Philly would select him.

If they can find a way into the top five, then maybe.

thats where experts saw him over a year ago.

Things can change in a heartbeat....remember Channing Frye was projected like 24th then he had a good close to his college career and good workouts ended up 7th

Isn't he projected to be a versatile 7 footer, with perimeter skills? Scoring being his main asset. Why you'd want to surround Melo|Amare with that is beyond me. I'd be looking for tough gritty defensive first guy's who rebounds the ball.

Everything I read is that he compares to AB. Why would you even want AB on the Knicks? That would basically solidify that the Knicks were going with the out score the opponent first, play defense second Mike D style of play. It would do wonders for Melo|Amare offensively but not the way to make serious noise.

I dunno much about him tho. Just what I read, and what I read seems to be the opposite of what the Knicks should do imo.

Mike D'Antoni is going to go down in flames doing it his own way till the bitter end. I agree this is not what we need...but if he's Bargnani-esque he'd be very useful on this team.

Tell me about it. He'd be perfect, but like Montiejunas... he's most likely out of our range...

But every year some lottery picks fall really far. Think about how Alabi and Whiteside were supposed to be lotto pick last year (Alabi almost didn't get drafted and Whiteside was a 2nd rounder). IMO, if anyone falls it could be Biyombo because of all the questions about his age. Personally, I don't care if he's 26 or 18, I would go crazy if he was there at 17 and the Knicks didn't pick him.
