Phil Jackson likes Frank Kaminsky for Knicks in NBA Draft — report

SHARE Phil Jackson likes Frank Kaminsky for Knicks in NBA Draft — report

Despite having the second worst record in the league this season, the ping-pong balls left the New York Knicks picking fourth in tonight’s NBA Draft.

By most accounts, two players will clearly go one and two—Karl-Anthony Towns and Jahlil Okafor. Both are just the kind of big men Knicks chairman Phil Jackson would love.

But there’s a another big man, Jackson is reportedly eyeing.

According to ESPN NBA insider Chad Ford, Jackson likes former Wisconsin star and college player of the year Frank Kaminsky.

Does Jackson like him so much that he’d take him at No. 4? Maybe. More likely, though, Jackson would trade down to get Frank The Tank, who originally projected as a 10-to-15 pick but is rapidly moving up.

If Phil gets his guy, the rest of New York might not be happy.
