New York Knicks 2014 Draft Report Card


The Sports Network

( - The New York Knicks availed themselves nicely to even get in this draft, let alone get some serious value in Thursday's second round.

Wichita State's Cleanthony Early is a personal favorite. He can really do so many things not least among them, shoot. Early is a guy who will play right away despite his second-round status. He's going to force the Knicks to insert him into the rotation because of his work ethic and versatility. Love him.

Antetokounmpo was nice value at 51, although Knicks' fans shouldn't assume they're getting a slightly younger version of Milwaukee's Giannis. Thanasis might not play in the US this season, but was worth a shot.

Labyrie can always tell his family Phil Jackson drafted him.

Grade: B
