24) New York Knicks: Kyle Filipowski

Considering that the New York Knicks are expected to try and upgrade their roster this summer, it seems like they will try to move either or both of their first-round picks. However, for the purposes of this mock draft, we will assume that they will make both selections, starting with them picking Kyle Filipowski 24th overall. Filipowski is one of the more productive big men in this year's draft, averaging 17.1 points while also shooting 34.8% from three on 3.1 attempts and 8.2 rebounds.

That might make him a great option for the Knicks, who have some question marks surrounding their frontcourt heading into the offseason. The Knicks may consider moving on from Julius Randle and they may lose center Isaiah Hartenstein to free agency after he had a strong postseason.

As a result, if they keep at least one of their first-round picks, they may look to add depth in their frontcourt and Filipowski makes sense given his ability to score in the post and knock down threes. That would make him a potential fit playing next to another big man or as a reliable second-unit center for the Knicks.
