New Knicks: Is Phil Jackson already proving his worth?

Just a few days ago, the New York Knicks had zero draft picks for the 2014 NBA Draft. However, after making a blockbuster trade with the Mavericks, the Knicks acquired two second round picks in what was a deep draft class. The 34th and 51st picks were huge for the Knicks.

With the 34th overall pick, the Knicks selected Cleanthony Early. Early, a small forward, was projected to go in the first round by many experts and analysts. He fell to the Knicks at 34th overall. Early is a terrific scorer with plenty of potential. The 23 year old forward averaged 16.4 points per game in his senior season at Wichita State. In the NCAA Tournament this past March against the Kentucky Wildcats, Early scored 31 points and grabbed 7 rebounds. At 6 foot-8 and 215 pounds, Early has good size, too. Early was born in Middletown, New York. Now, he’s back home. In the triangle offense, Cleanthony Early is a great fit because of his size and ability to shoot and score.

  1. Give Phil the chance to do his job; Woodson jacked that team with that I-so nonsense, to easy to defend; let them rid themselves of J.R. (bad locker room guy & not that good)
