New York Knicks draft rumors: Brandon Jennings edition

Tim Hardaway Jr. is one of the only Knicks worth keeping on the roster. Please no. While I really do hope that the New York Knicks trade down so that they can both acquire a proven NBA player and still have a pick within the lottery, trading for Brandon Jennings is not the way to do it. One of the biggest reasons a team trades down is to ensure the addition of a veteran player who...
