Knicks Looking To Add A Perimeter Scorer Through Draft


The New York Knicks averaged 88 points per game during the playoffs, despite having such proven gunners as Carmelo Anthony and J.R. Smith on the roster.

They were destroyed on the offensive glass, yet their biggest deficiency at times was finding a perimeter oriented scorer on the floor for them.

The Star Ledger is reporting that the Knicks are looking to solve that problem via next weeks draft.  The Knicks have worked out several swingmen, including Tim Hardaway, Jr., of Michigan, Reggie Bullock of North Carolina, Allen Crabbe of Cal, and Tony Snell of New Mexico.

All four of those players have the ability to score the ball, and can fit in at small forward if need be.  The biggest question for the Knicks will be in regards to if those players can translate that scoring ability from college, to the NBA.
