The Knicks select Andy Rautins and Landry Fields

New, comments

With the 38th and 39th picks, the Knicks select Andy Rautins from Syracuse and Landry Fields from Stanford.

DraftExpress on Rautins:

On the offensive end, Rautins' game completely revolves around his three-point shot, which he hits with very high accuracy (41%) and is capable of doing in a variety of ways ... His shot has outstanding mechanics, including a quick and high release point, excellent elevation, and a consistent shooting motion ... Looking forward, Rautins has one clear NBA skill in terms of his three-point shooting, but it's tough to say whether that alone will find him a place in the league.

Chad Ford tweet on Landry Fields:

Knicks take Landry Fields with their second pick. Fields wasn't in my Top 100. First time a team drafts a player out of my Top 100 in yrs

Drake's instant analysis:


Darington Hobson, who the Knicks were reportedly smitten with, was chosen by the Bucks at #37. Alan Hahn points out that the Knicks' target was plucked right in front of them in consecutive drafts.

Hahn also twat that the Knicks will purchase #44 pick, Jerome Jordan, from the Bucks.

More to come, but for now, do you like the picks? (I think I know the answer.)
