They noted his loyalty in his decision to stay at Auburn and work out with his coaches and former teammates. And they liked the 19-year-old’s maturity and demeanor when he greeted Cleveland’s entourage and thanked them for coming to campus. When he impressed in his workout and during their dinner together, they were pretty much sold. “I think we were tremendously fortunate that we got the right fit in terms of player and the best talent on the board, as well,” GM Koby Altman said Wednesday after the Cavs took Okoro with the fifth overall pick in the draft. “And that’s hard to do. Because you’re always sort of weighing the right fit versus who’s the best available talent. Isaac was both.”
If New York stays at No. 8, players on their radar include Florida State’s Devin Vassell, guard Killian Hayes, Auburn’s Isaac Okoro. If the Knicks keep the No. 8 pick and the No. 23 pick, opposing teams see Washington’s Isaiah Stewart as a player to watch for New York at 23.
