Nets Daily: Doesn't like Mudiay, sees red flags on maturity. Says Knicks have 4th pick in 3 player draft. Big setback. Twitter @NetsDaily

The Lakers and 76ers will pick second and third, respectively. Philadelphia has been linked strongly to Russell. Mills wouldn’t comment on Russell, but did offer something on Mudiay, a former Dallas high schooler. “Mudiay is potentially a very good player,” Mills said. “We haven’t worked him out yet. He’s a guy who will be in the mix.’’ New York Post

But he certainly wouldn't have a problem settling into a New York state of mind and suiting up as a teammate of Carmelo Anthony's if the Knicks end up selecting him with the fourth overall pick in the June 25 draft at Barclays Center. "I would love to, but I don't know where I'm going to end up," Mudiay said once the lottery results were unveiled at the Hilton in midtown. "He's a superstar in this league and somebody that knows the game in and out, so he would definitely give me some good advice if I was to go there." Newsday

Mills, who wore Dave DeBusschere’s Hall of Fame ring for good luck, admitted being disappointed that the Knicks ended up where they did. He also didn’t rule out trading the pick for more assets, as President Phil Jackson has discussed already. “We’re going to be open to a lot of things, but we know we can get a good player at this pick but we’re also going to be open to talking to teams and looking at different options,” Mills said.

"He's a perfect fit for the Knicks and their triangle offense," a league executive said. A former general manager added: "His ability and willingness to pass the ball are some of his strengths right now." Bleacher Report


Carmelo Anthony already ahead of Phil Jackson, but still far away from the all-time New York greats.
