The Knicks currently have the sixth-worst record in the NBA, giving them a 9% chance of taking the first pick. Of course everything will depend on how the final positions of the current campaign end, which could be resumed in Orlando, according to the latest reports.
In case of not being left with a pick within the first three places, the New York team would have to look for a change to be able to go up in the draw and stay with Lonzo Ball’s brother.
