      I like the pick as well. Potential to be a very good bench/support player with strong upside due to his age. But then again, as a frustrated Knicks fan, I would look for anything positive even if they drafted an empty box.

    Ignas will pressure Knox. They will probably tell him to go after him and he will. Starting job at MSG available. I like the pick… maybe an Eduardo Najera with scoring instincts.
