The New York Knicks have an all-important lottery pick and there remains a chance of the franchise keeping the player that will be selected, which would actually run counter to their history.
The Knicks, however, could be interested in trading away the pick if it falls outside the top-2.
Dating back to the 2002 NBA Draft when they included Nene in their deal with Marcus Camby for Antonio McDyess, a number of their lottery picks have been traded in advance.
The Knicks kept Mike Sweetney and Channing Frye in 2003 and 2005, respectively, but the LaMarcus Aldridge and Joakim Noah picks were dealt in advance in the Eddy Curry deal, as were the Gordon Hayward and Dario Saric picks. The Noah pick was technically a swap with the Bulls that resulted in Wilson Chandler.
Sweetney was included in the Curry trade, while Frye was traded in 2007 for Zach Randolph.
Danilo Gallinari was drafted in 2008 and traded in February of 2011 in the Carmelo Anthony trade, while Jordan Hill was traded in his rookie season in 2010 to clear extra cap space.
In total, the Knicks have only yielded 437 games from their nine potential lottery picks since 2002.
The Knicks have already traded away their first round pick in 2016 to the Raptors, which was already part of a pick swap with the Nuggets.
