Report: If They Win Draft Lotto, Knicks Will Focus On Trading #1 Overall Pick For Anthony Davis
If they win the NBA draft lottery tonight, the New York Knicks will reportedly focus on trading it as part of a package for New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis, according to a report from Shams Charania of Stadium.
In the clip above, Charania says, "With Zion Williamson, the number one overall pick, and Kevin Knox, their prized rookie who had a stellar campaign really started to develop over the course of the season, they could pair up both of those guys in a trade for Anthony Davis."
The Knicks are tied with the best odds to win the #1 overall pick in tonight's NBA Draft lottery at 14%. New Orleans is tied for the 7th best odds at 6%.
Knox along with the rights to draft Zion Williamson would be appealing for the Pelicans, who don't expect Davis to sign a super max contract with them after he announced his desire to be traded several months ago.
