Summary of the first round of the NBA draft: The Knicks made a lot of moves, not anyone

Surprisingly, the 2022 NBA drafts tonight were the top three Paolo Banchero, Chet Holmgrenand Jabari Smith.

Surprising to many, Kings of Sacramento kept their fourth choice and chose with it Keegan Murray. Other teams made offers to choose from, including New York Knicksbut the kings used it to choose a talented striker from Iowa. During a TV show, ESPN named Jay Bilas Murray “Most Ready to Connect Now.”

The Knicks had also tried an exchange Detroit as your fifth choice. The Pistons also kept their choice Jaden Ivey (Purdue) and breaking New York’s dream landing a And Morant-type point protector. The Pistons took Ivey with the aim of prolonging trade talks, but the human missile appears to remain in Motor City.

With the 11th choice, the Knicks chose Ousmane Dieng (F, 6’10 ”, New Zealand Breakers), but held him for about thirty seconds before switching to OKC for three conditional future first-round selections.

There was some confusion Charlotte’s choose 14. They chose Jalen Durenwho was then traded to the Knicks, who then sent him and Kemba Walker Detroit. Acquiring a promising center should put an end to the pursuit of Pistons Mitchell Robinson and cut the bidding war for Knicks’ great man.

Accordingly Stefan Bondy“The Knicks exchanged four future second-round selections and a conditional first-round option for the Hornets to lose Kemba Walker’s salary.” Zach Lowe added“Knicks will also acquire the first round of Bucks 2025 in the Pistons-Knicks-Hornets trade, according to league sources.
