In their latest mock draft, ESPN sees Oklahoma PG Trae Young going to the Knicks at No. 9 overall.
Young, known for his ability to score from virtually anywhere on the floor, comes out of Oklahoma with Freshman of the Year honors after leading the NCAA in points (27.4) and assists (8.7). Though ESPN's Kevin Pelton believe he has defense needs work, his offensive capabilities makes him too enticing for the Knicks as he falls down the draft board.
"I've alerady passed a couple of times on Young, the third-ranked prospect in my projections," Pelton wrote. "But this point in the draft, however, any concerns about how he'll hold up defensively are more than outweighed by Young's massive offensive potential. Mikal Bridges is the only other player I'd consider here, and Young is an easy choice over him."
