GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Along with hiring their next head coach, the Knicks also have several major decisions to make with regard to the upcoming NBA Draft.
The Knicks have two picks in the June 21 Draft at Barclays Center, currently slated at Nos. 9 and 37, per Tankathon.com. GM Scott Perry said Thursday the franchise has "no timetable" on hiring a new coach, and it remains unclear if a coach will be in place before the NBA Draft Lottery (May 15), the NBA Combine (May 16-20), or the Draft itself.
"We have a high draft pick coming up this year in the lottery, we also have a higher second-round pick as well to add to our talent mix," Knicks GM Scott Perry said Thursday at the Knicks facility. "And so we've really created a very holistic approach in terms of how we've gone about our scouting, very detailed and organized, so we're just confident in a lot of processes that have been put in place here that we believe will bear fruit as we move forward."
