The New York Knicks seem to like both Miles Bridges and Mikal Bridges.
With the New York Knicks’ season now over, despite the fact that they have a handful of games left, we can focus more on this year’s NBA draft.
The draft is about four months away, and Ian Begley of ESPN reported on Wednesday that some people within the Knicks’ organization really like Michigan State forward Miles Bridges and Villanova wing Mikal Bridges.
We don’t know where the Knicks will end up picking in late June but, at the moment, some in the organization are high on Michigan State forward Miles Bridges & Villanova wing Mikal Bridges. A look at what’s ahead for NYK in the wake of Kristaps Porzingis’ ACL injury here: https://t.co/qBh6r1XtGk

Miles Bridges has been averaging 17 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game this season for the Spartans.
Mikal Bridges has been avaraging 16.8 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game this season for Nova.
The Knicks do need more help on the wing, but a small forward like Miles would be nice, since it would allow Tim Hardaway Jr. to start as a shooting guard.
One thing we do know is that the Knicks won’t be using their first round pick on a center or point guard. They already have a starter in Enes Kanter and just drafted Frank Ntilikina in the first round last year.
New York’s goal this coming offseason has to be to get more athletic and to improve their depth on the wing.
Comment below and give us your thoughts on the Knicks being interested in Miles and Mikal Bridges.
