Why Trae Young Wants to Be Drafted By Knicks

The Knicks were one pick away from drafting Steph Curry, but the Warriors beat them to it. Will the same happen with Trae Young?

Earlier this week, Trae Young’s father, Ray, told the New York Daily News that New York is a desirable destination for his son because of the spotlight its big market creates. “That’s what Trae lives for,” Ray said of his son, who interviewed with New York on Friday. Multiple league sources told me that the Knicks have the hots for the Oklahoma point guard, so the interest is mutual.

The Knicks have the 9th pick in the drat, so they are going to have to hope Young’s small stature by NBA standards causes him to fall.
