Just don't think he was anywhere close to bpa and even if you were going sg I'd prefer quite a few other 2's. Archie Goodwin, Franklin, crabbe

Hardaway jr is a guy that can only play 1 position and isn't a creator and not an elite athlete. Not a total loss though, prob a good guy for the 9-12 spots on the roster

Just a bad draft night to pick up a backup type to your only young talented guy in shumpert. The team needed another young potential part of the core. Super safe pick - should have taken a gamble on higher ceiling talent.

Should have taken nedovic or Goodwin. Both on the board and capable of being the future pg of the Knicks.
I dont really disagree with anything you are saying. Every dude you mentioned probably have a bigger upside.

But I think all of those guys are projects. Goodwin and Franklin arent the shooters Hardaway is and Crabb isnt as good off the ball shooting as Hardaway. So I think it was based on immediate impact player that doesnt require as much coaching and development. I think that's a major factor.

I dont like that this might potentially move Shump to SF. Let this guy flourish at SG stop taking square pegs for round holes.
