Knicks 2014 NBA Draft Recap

Written by Kenneth Teape (@teapester725) For a team that was shut out altogether from the 2014 NBA Draft just 48 hours ago, the New York Knicks made quite a splash. President Phil Jackson was said to be coveting picks in this draft, and wanted in. He was able to do that after swinging a trade with the Dallas Mavericks that saw Raymond Felton and Tyson Chandler shipped to Dallas for Jose Calderon, Samuel Dalembert, Shane Larkin, and Wayne Ellington and two second-round draft picks. Jackson and the Knicks made the most of those draft picks, selecting Cleanthony Early 34th and Thanasis Antetokounmpo 51st. Jackson did not stop there, as he also purchased the 57th pick from the Indiana Pacers and selected French center Louis Labeyrie.
