The New York Knicks are working hard to strike gold in this year’s NBA Draft.
The New York Knicks will certainly have a top-10 draft pick when this June’s NBA Draft comes around, the question is, who will land?
In order to prepare for the draft, the Knicks sent some scouts to check out the SEC tournament, according to ESPN’s Ian Begley.
I’m sure the Knicks had scouts attend just about every conference tournament.
The Knicks (along with probably every other NBA team) had scouting personnel at the SEC Tournament, where they saw Collin Sexton & the Kentucky prospects, among others https://t.co/CzcrKAQp3N

Alabama’s Collin Sexton had himself a very impressive tournament. The 6-foot-3 freshman point guard has averaged 19 points per game and could go in the top-10 of the 2018 NBA Draft.
Missouri’s Michael Porter Jr. didn’t look very impressive after returning from injury. I’m not sure how much you can really take from his play given the fact that he certainly has plenty of rust to knock off. He may want to come back for another year at Mizzou.
It’s going to be very interesting to see how some of the top players in the country play in the NCAA Tournament Once again, the Knicks will certainly have their scouts out and about all over the country in order to keep their eye on every prospect.
Comment below and tell us which young player you would like to see the Knicks draft.
