25) New York Knicks-Ryan Dunn

The New York Knicks will get not one but two chances to select in the first round of the 2024 NBA draft. Given that they may lose a couple of key players in restricted free agency, they should keep both players and hope that at least one of them can turn into a rotation player in the next couple of seasons.

That makes Virginia wing Ryan Dunn an interesting option for the Knicks.Dunn is considered to be among the best perimeter defenders in the draft, though he also has the lowest scoring average of any player projected to be taken in the first round after averaging 8.1 points per game for the Cavaliers this season. Offense won't be his calling card in the NBA but it could determine whether he survives as an NBA player.

He shot just 20% from three in college and will need to be at least a decent three-point shooter to survive in the NBA. If he can develop that skill, he could become a valuable three-and-d player, which Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau would surely love given his defensive principles.
