Hunter, Alexander-Walker and Jerome selected in 1st round of NBA Draft

The only way Knicks can mess up this pick is if they overthink

Other sports outlets, like CBS Sports, will offer free coverage of the picks, including commentary on which player each team picks. "I'm so happy to be a Knick, and I can't wait to play in Madison Square Garden". The Pelicans also received the No. 4 pick in the draft, though they traded that pick to the Atlanta Hawks for Jaxson Hayes, the No. 8 pick. Perry added that Barrett convinced NY that he was the pick during his workout and visit to the team facility before the draft. Conley was dealt this week to Utah in a deal that won't be official until July 6 when the new league year begins. Last year it was Trae Young, and this year he decided that De'Andre Hunter was the flawless fit for his young Atlanta team.

France previously held the record with five players taken in the 2016 draft.

With tears in his eyes, he told draft broadcaster ESPN, "I don't know what to say". That was one of my destinations. I've seen someone who put in the work, who put those naysayers aside and just continued to do what we asked, continued to believe in the process.

De'Andre Hunter is expected to join the Atlanta Hawks as the fourth pick.

There's still the chance the Pelicans utilize the pick and select a prospect to team alongside their phenom, Zion Williamson. "I don't think a lot of people are fortunate enough to be in that kind of situation, so I just thank God that I got a mother like I did".

Williamson, 18, who is 6ft 7in and 129kg, was named college player of the year after his only season for Duke in which he averaged 22.6 points.

He was 1st team All-ACC selection, the National Defensive and ACC Defensive Player of the Year and was 3rd team All-American.

Hunter isn't as flashy as others in the draft and, if anything, he needs to be more assertive.

Barrett started in all 38 of Duke's games last season, playing a team-high 35.3 minutes per game. He averaged nearly 14 points and 5.5 assists during the year.

Reddish is a stellar athlete with the potential to be a long-range shooter and lockdown defender with his 7-foot wingspan. Barrett also shared an embrace with former Duke teammate Zion Williamson, who went No. 1 overall to the New Orleans Pelicans.
