People are down on the draft and IMO the roster would be filled out nicely by 3-4 rookies in this draft. Make Carmelo and Jr be the vets
2nd round studs for the Knicks
Elias Harris 6-8 sf Gonzaga
Vander blue 6-5 pg Marquette
Ennis 6-7 sg/sf Long beach state
Crabbe 6-6 sg cal
Kadji 6-10 pf Miami
Ryan Kelley 6-10 pf duke
Both of them are approaching 30, have kids, etc. They are who they are.
Maturity is never going to be one of their strong suits.
I forgot Vander Blue declared, but he'd be a perfect fit in that early 2nd round range or even justify a reach for him at 24. If Kidd retires, he is insurance as a big PG/SG who can play some defense. But a season with Kidd's teaching will definetly help him.
