The Knicks will pick ninth in the 2018 NBA draft

Could’ve been worse!

NBA: New York Knicks-Media Day Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Knicks will pick ninth in the 2018 NBA draft.

One might think that it was predictable that the Knicks would hold tight at the ninth spot in the draft lottery, but it probably would’ve been more predictable if they moved down rather than stood pat. So, at least there’s that!

ESPN, dastardly folks that they are, announced picks 14-10 before going to commercial break, giving nail-biting Knicks fans everywhere a small modicum of hope that their team would move up. Alas, nine it was, and nine it is.

Try not to think too hard about this (the Kings moved up to the No. 2 spot):

So, yeah. Bring on Mikal Bridges! (Or someone similar.)
