The 2018 NBA Draft Lottery didn't provide a rescue for New York's troubles with a jump into the top three of this year's draft.
Instead, the Knicks will pick at No.
Here are four names to watch over the next month.
Any of the four could be New York's pick in this year's draft.
Collin Sexton, PG, Alabama: Averaged 19.2 points and 3.6 assists playing for an Alabama team that made the NCAA Tournament.
Relentless player that would fit in well in New York.
If his shooting becomes more consistent, a pick-and-roll partner with Kristaps Porzingis could emerge.
Wendell Carter Jr.
C, Duke: Carter Jr.
has been compared to a young Al Horford.
Considering what's been going on with Horford's Celtics in the NBA postseason, that's an incredibly high compliment and big praise.
Carter Jr.
possess a versatile game that could mesh with Porzingis.
NBA mock draft Mikal Bridges, SF, Villanova: The quintessential '3-and-D' wing.
If Bridges continues to develop a three-point shot at the next level, a poor man's Kawhi Leonard could emerge.
Bridges averaged 17.7 points and 5.3 rebounds per game for the last season's national champions.
Mo Bamba, C, Texas: Bamba averaged 12.9 points, 10.5 rebounds and 3.7 blocks per game last season in the Big 12.
Bamba's athleticism and wing span could change New York's defense in a big way.
