Donnie Walsh

According to ESPN.com’s Chad Ford, former Knicks general manager Donnie Walsh will still be “calling the shots” for the Knicks in the 2011 NBA draft. 

While it’s a bit of an awkward situation, the Knicks seem to trust Walsh, whose replacement may come from within the organization, in this situation.

According to Ford, the Knicks, who hold the #17 pick in the 2011 draft, are focused on five players: Klay Thompson, Jimmer Fredette, Josh Selby, Marshon Brooks, and Kenneth Faried.

    No way Jimmer is slipping that far. The jazz, suns, or pacers will take him first.

      If he were to fall that far, Klay Thompson would be a great addition for a Knick team woefully thin in the shooting department.

    I still think CAA will have a bigger role in this draft then people think. The Knicks will take Josh Selby, a CAA client, with the 17th pick

    Also, Chad Ford will have very accurate analysis on the majority of this year’s draft picks.

    The reality is that both aforementioned statements will be completely wrong!!!
