Could the New York Knicks Still Land Anthony Davis?

NBA Draft Lottery

Phoenix, one of three teams with the best odds to nab the first pick, slipped all the way to sixth behind the Pelicans, Grizzlies, Knicks, Lakers and.

Williamson said he has never been to New Orleans. Let's take a dive with this mock draft.

Griffin reiterated on Tuesday that he's committed to trying to keep Davis in New Orleans. And the lottery win comes after a season when Davis wanted a trade - something that might not seem so appealing to him now, not with Williamson likely coming to New Orleans.

At this point, I'd guess, the draft will start with the fourth pick because, barring a surprise, Williamson, Ja Morant and RJ Barrett, in that order, will be the first three players off the board. He has visions of grandeur in his head, visions of a two-sport athlete who could take the city and the sports world by storm.

New Orleans has bucked the odds and won the National Basketball Association draft lottery, and now will have the first chance at choosing Zion Williamson next month.

How does the Los Angeles Lakers' incompetence and soap opera-esque season get rewarded? If that's the case, the Celtics arguably have the best package of picks and young players to offer New Orleans. The Memphis Grizzlies' pick was top-eight protected this season, top-six protected next year and unprotected in 2021. That pick was conveyed to the Celtics by Sacramento as part of an earlier trade.

Boston, still hoping to convince Irving to stay, could offer any combination of Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart, Robert Williams (who prepped at North Caddo) as well a high-number deal like Al Horford (one year left at $30,123,014) if he opts in. Charlotte is next up, followed by Miami at 13 and Boston at 14.

The 26-year old superstar will become a free agent in the summer of 2020 if the Pelicans fail to either sign him to a supermax extension or find a trade partner before the February 2020 deadline.

Of course, Davis' openness to re-signing in NY, as SNY reported, could motivate the Knicks to put together a significant offer for the Pelicans' star.

However, the Knicks aren't the only team that's expected to pursue Davis.
