24) New York Knicks- Yves Missi

After having the most successful season in a decade, the New York Knicks will look to build on that success this summer and will have not one but two first-round picks at their disposal. There is the off chance that the Knicks consolidate the 24th and 25th picks to move up and select a higher-quality player but they may instead opt to take two swings in the hopes of finding future rotation players.

Their first swing may be on Yves Missi, who would give them a potential backup center replacement, with Isaiah Hartenstein possibly being lured away in restricted free agency. Missi measures out at 6'10 with a 7'2 wingspan and has an eye-popping 38.5 inch vertical leap, which is outstanding for a big man.

Better yet, he was productive at Baylor as a low-minute starter, posting 10.7 points on 61.4 FG%, 5.6 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks in a little over 22 minutes per game. There is still work to be done on his offensive game but he projects to be an athletic roll man on one end and a rim protector on the other. He may not pay immediate dividends for the Knicks but he just might in a year or two.
