As Kristaps Porzingis continues his rehab from a torn ACL, the Knicks are in the process of choosing a main piece to put alongside their franchise player.
All signs point to the Knicks taking a forward with the No. 9 pick in Thursday’s NBA Draft. The forward position is an area of need for the Knicks and a strength in this draft.
Villanova’s Mikal Bridges, Duke’s Wendall Carter, Missouri’s Michael Porter Jr. and Kentucky’s Kevin Knox are players on the Knicks’ radar.
Depending on how the draft plays out, Bridges and Knox might be the only two available when the Knicks pick.
