The Knicks have been reportedly very open to trading down from the 4th overall pick which was awarded to them at the lottery. Since after the 3rd pick, the players available might not be exactly what they’re looking for, the Knicks executives are not ruling out all available options. Reports are that the team is now setting up a meeting with Frank Kaminsky.
“The best player in college basketball, whom some Knicks fans would like to see them trade down in the draft in order to snatch, 7-foot senior Frank Kaminsky, is tentatively scheduled to meet with the club next Tuesday and Wednesday in New York, according to a league source.
Talks are taking place to finalize the visit. Kaminsky, the Naismith College Player of the Year, who led Wisconsin to the NCAA title game, interviewed with Knicks president Phil Jackson last month at the Chicago combine. Kaminsky, pegged at No. 8 to Detroit in a recent DraftExpress.com mock draft, told Jackson: “I’m 22 years old and I get treated like I’m 65 going into the NBA.’’
