WEDNESDAY 5/16 BRIEFING

CATCH ME UP IN 60 SECONDS

NBA Draft

The Knicks will select 9th and 36th in the upcoming draft. There has been some confusion about whether the Knicks select 36th or 37th in the second round, but they will select 36th.

The Knicks will interview Trae Young on Friday. Young’s father believes his son is made for New York; and he explains how Young’s game is different than Collin Sexton’s.

Scott Perry says the Knicks will be ready for anything on draft night (i.e. trades) by evaluating a broad range of prospects in preparation.

Perry also noted that the Knicks are looking to draft a player whose game fits how they want to play.

Steve Mills has a random connection to the 1985 lottery that won the Knicks the right to select Patrick Ewing.

James Woodruff breaks down why Mikal Bridges is the NBA-ready wing the Knicks need today.


Kristaps Porzingis

Kristaps Porzingis is working out with Real Madrid in Spain. He is expected to stay in Europe for most of the offseason.

David Fizdale will visit him when he returns to Latvia, so he can meet Porzingis’ family and tour his hometown.

Scott Perry was cautious in predicting Porzingis’ timetable to return next season.
