Knicks 2020 NBA Draft: Leon Rose Starts Off Strong

Reading Time: 2 minutesAfter going just 21-45 in a season that was cut short due to the COVID pandemic, the Knicks were in place to get the 6th pick in the draft. What happened was the Knicks did what the Knicks have been doing a lot recently — they got unlucky.  Having the 8th pick in the draft the Knicks had many options.  Needing some help both on the wings and at the point guard position, I thought the clear selection was Tyrese Haliburton.

Toppin won Naismith Player of the Year and was known for his highlight-reel plays. He was selected by the Knicks as the 8th Overall Pick in the NBA Draft and has been one of the few Knicks picks to get praise.

Breaking Down The Knicks’ Offseason

Reading Time: 3 minutesNot only did the New York Knicks have one of their better drafts in recent years, but they have also been making great moves through trade and free agency. Standout forward and Naismith Player of the Year Obi Toppin fell right into their open arms with the 8th pick in the draft after being projected to go higher.
