RJ Barrett confesses Knicks draft dream: 'The place I want to be'

13 June 2019

"No, I do not. I think we'd complement each other". "So, it's this and then the draft".

RJ Barrett: "This is the place I want to be".

Rumours have been swirling that the Knicks could end up moving the pick, but Barrett believes that if he's on the board when the Knicks step to the podium on draft night, he should be the name called.

With the Knicks holding the No. 3 pick, they are widely expected to select Barrett, who is considered to be the third-best player in the draft.

Duke team-mate Zion Williamson is a near-lock to go No 1 to the New Orleans Pelicans, with Murray State point guard Ja Morant the likely second pick to the Memphis Grizzlies. And apparently, that's exactly who he wants to play for - under the bright lights of Madison Square Garden.

ESPN has Barrett at No. 3 on its rankings of the top 100 NBA Draft prospects. "It would be incredible".

"I think he'll be an exciting player for Knicks fans", Nash told the New York Daily News in May. the two-time MVP Point Guard went on to praise Barrett's skillset that he feels will have a profound impact wherever he goes in the National Basketball Association.
