The Knicks came away with one player on draft night, and he is an intriguing prospect.
After trading out of the first round to clear cap space and add down-the-road assets, president Leon Rose selected athletic yet enigmatic Duke guard Trevor Keels with the 42nd overall pick.
Keels entered his one year of college with significant hype, a five-star recruit ranked No. 23 in his class by 247Sports.com.
The 6-foot-4 guard had an up-and-down season as Duke reached the Final Four, averaging 11.5 points, 3.4 rebounds and shooting 31.2 percent from 3-point range. His last game was one of his best, a 19-point performance in a national semifinal loss to North Carolina, after he had managed just 27 points in his first four NCAA Tournament games.
