Knicks constantly fall short.
Not to say its impossible, but its fewer undrafted guys who end up making an impact as rookies as there are 2nd Round Picks. It also gives fans a better clarity on the potential/value of young players if they were drafted compared to if they were undrafted.
For the most part we'd be willing to see for 2-3 seasons how someone like Jorts or Jerome Jordan "develops" as opposed to how a guy like Jeremy Lin would've "developed" simply off of him being undrafted. GM's think the same way too which is why Lin almost got dealt for Anthony Carter or waived.
