Report: Knicks targeting Malik Monk, Frank Ntilikina in upcoming draft
Help is on the way for the depleted New York Knicks' guard rotation.
Ntilikina is a 6-foot-5 guard currently playing at the top level of the French league. The 18-year-old is averaging five points and 1.9 rebounds in limited minutes, but has demonstrated excellent defensive potential and a knack for getting to the rim.
Monk profiles as an undersized shooting guard with elite athleticism and a proficient shooting stroke. He averaged 20 points per game while shooting 39 percent from deep and 50 percent from the field.
Either one of Monk or Ntilikina would represent a huge upgrade over what the Knicks currently have in place, especially for the long haul with Derrick Rose set to be a free agent.
