Frank Kaminsky June 2015

This would be a very Knicks-like move if this happened

According to the Sporting News, the New York Knicks are considering drafting Wisconsin big man Frank Kaminsky at the No. 4 overall pick.

The Knicks had the Wisconsin big man in for dinner and a workout late last week and came away impressed. While there has been speculation that the Knicks would like to trade down in order to take Kaminsky, they haven’t found a willing partner for a deal.

Kaminsky would not have gone to New York unless the interest from the Knicks was real. And he was assured that it was, that the team would not waste his time or theirs unless there was a chance he would wind up with the Knicks.

That’s why one of the topics of discussion at the Knicks meeting was bucking conventional wisdom, passing on guards D’Angelo Russell and/or Emmanuel Mudiay and taking Kaminsky — whose versatility makes him a natural fit in the triangle offense — with the fourth overall pick, two league sources told Sporting News. If they do pass on the two guards expected to be on the board, the Knicks are also considering Willie Cauley-Stein and Justise Winslow with the No. 4 pick, though Cauley-Stein appears to be slipping.

This would shock the world if the Knicks did this, since Kaminsky isn't even projected at top 5 at all.
