The New York Knicks have a 14 percent chance of winning the lottery this season with Zion Williamson considered the unanimous best player available. But if the Knicks win the lottery, they will likely try to use Williamson in a trade for Anthony Davis.

"The Knicks getting that No. 1 overall pick impacts the Anthony Davis potential trade talks. I'm told if the Knicks get the No. 1 overall pick, they would then shift their focus towards a potential deal for Anthony Davis in Zion Williams with the No. 1 overall pick and potentially Kevin Knox. They could pair both of those guys in a trade for Anthony Davis.

"There might not be another team out there who has a better package than the Knicks if they were to get the No. 1 overall pick. That's where really the Knicks would shift their focus. That would arm them in free agency with Anthony Davis. All of these star players: Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant, the list goes on and on. Most of these guys want to play with other stars, want to play on teams that can compete deep and long in playoff runs. That's exactly what Anthony Davis would give the Knicks. He would give them a guy they could then try to sway Kevin Durant to join that franchise."

Davis requested a trade from the Pelicans in January and the franchise is likely to finally deal him this offseason.

I see this happening. And just like that the Knicks are better than the Celtics and competing for the title. This will knock the Celts back for years unless Brown and Tatum develop into superstars in the next couple of years. Pure luck of owning the #1 pick when everyone thinks there is a transformational player to be drafted.

  • When my account was born, Mark Blount was our C :(
So I assume they would also trade #2 or #3, and I wonder how Griffin has Barrett / Morant stacking up to Tatum.
Give us this pick, Almighty Red
And forgive us our tanking
As we forgive those who tanked against us
And lead us not into the lottery
But deliver us from losing

Woj just flatly contradicted that report. Said the Knicks will absolutely keep Zion.

Well Woj just said NYK will keep the #1 pick if they get it.

This is the first time I've heard the 2 alpha news breakers conflict each other.

EDIT - LOL

Lol Woj just explicitly said that NYK would absolutely not trade #1/Zion in a Davis trade. Interesting. Hope thatís true, as that would take pretty much every other legit suitor out of the running sans LAL winning the lottery.
