Dave Deckard from Blazer's Edge is the host of this brand new podcast, he is joined each week by Kevin Nesgoda from Sonics Rising. The podcast is a week by week outside look at different NBA teams.
In the pilot episode Dave and Kevin take a look at the very crazy New York Knicks franchise. These two scholars break into the Phil Jackson signing and will that help the Knicks become a solid franchise. Do the Knicks keep Carmelo or do they let him go? Is Steve Kerr the right choice for head coach?
These topics and much, much more are covered.
If Jahlil Okafor is available at No. 4, the New York Knicks will take him.
If Okafor is gone, somebody is going to take the No. 4 pick from the Knicks.
This is the intel I am hearing from points near and far as we count down the days to the 2015 NBA Draft. Phil Jackson has a bare cupboard when it comes to future draft picks, and he is inclined to trade down in exchange for multiple picks in this year's draft and in future drafts.
How bare is the Knicks' cupboard?
They do not have a second-round pick in 2015, nor in 2016 or 2018.
They do not have a first-round pick in 2016, having sent it to the Toronto Raptors for Andrea Bargnani.
So WWPD -- What Will Phil Do?
The educated guess here is that he will go back and forth with Sam Hinkie of Philadelphia and Danny Ainge of Boston in an effort to restock the cupboard.
The Celtics have picks 16, 28, 33 and 45 in this year's draft, along with the rights to Brooklyn's No. 1 picks in 2016, 2017 (right to swap) and 2018. They also have the Mavericks' first-round pick in 2016, the Mavericks' first-round pick in 2016 (protected 1-7), the Timberwolves first-round pick in 2016 (protected 1-12), and the Grizlies' first-round pick in 2018 (protected 1-12).
The 76ers have picks 3, 35, 37, 47, 58 and 60 in this year's draft. They also own the rights to four first-round picks next year: Their own, the Lakers' (protected 1-3), the Heat's (protected 1-10), the Thunder's (protected 1-15), along with nine second-round picks from other teams between 2016 and 2020.
Both Ainge and Hinkie can load up Phil's wheelbarrow and restock his cupboard if that is what Jackson chooses to do. At this point, I would say it is more likely than not that Jackson trades the No. 4 pick before the draft.

The New York Mets were very busy in free agency ugrading the roster immensely with the likes of Juan Uribe, Kelly Johnson, Tyler Clippard and the biggest bat brought in since Carlos Delgado, Yoenis Cespedes. Found out how I feel Sandy Alderson did in free agency and if these moves will be enough to over take the Washington Nationals in the NL East.
The New York Yankees were quiet at the trade deadline but are bringing up one of their prized rookie possessions in Luis Severino. The offense has been on a torrid pace while the pitching still leaves much to be desired.
The 2015 NBA Draft is officially in the books!
Kentucky Wildcats power forward Karl-Anthony Towns was selected first overall by the Minnesota Timberwolves. Towns joins a T-Wolves squad that boasts reigning NBA Rookie of the Year Andrew Wiggins and well-respected big man Kevin Garnett.
With the second overall pick in the draft, the Los Angeles Lakers selected Ohio State Buckeyes point guard D'Angelo Russell. Intrigued by Russell's "star" power and explosive offensive arsenal, the Lakers skipped on highly-coveted rim protector Jahlil Okafor in favour of drafting the Buckeyes' skilled floor general.
Unsurprisingly, the Philadelphia 76ers, bearing the third overall pick, subsequently selected the aforementioned Jahlil Okafor. The 19-year-old Duke University product joins a Sixers front court that includes two former first round picks in Nerlens Noel and Joel Embiid.
First Round - Top 15 Selections:
1. Karl-Anthony Towns (MIN)
2. D'Angelo Russell (LAL)
3. Jahlil Okafor (PHI)
4. Kristaps Porzingis (NYK)
5. Mario Hezonja (ORL)
6. Willie Cauley-Stein (SAC)
7. Emmanuel Mudiay (DEN)
8. Stanley Johnson (DET)
9. Frank Kaminsky (CHA)
10. Justise Winslow (MIA)
11. Myles Turner (IND)
12. Trey Lyles (UTH)
13. Devin Booker (PHX)
14. Cameron Payne (OKC)
15. Kelly Oubre (ATL - Traded to WSH)
