New York Knicks 2014 Draft Preview

Draft picks: No picks

By Jim Brighters, NBA Editor

(SportsNetwork.com) - This offseason is all about Carmelo Anthony for the New York Knicks.

With no draft picks and coming off an awful season, the Knicks need their All- Star forward back in Madison Square Garden. Should he leave, Phil Jackson would have a massive rebuild on his hands.

And no draft picks to start rebuilding.

New York could try to sneak into a late first-round slot, but they don't have a lot of future assets to move. They do have expiring contracts, but it's hard to imagine another team wanting Amare Stoudemire or Andrea Bargnani.

Players Under Contract: C Tyson Chandler; G J.R. Smith; G Raymond Felton; G Iman Shumpert; G Pablo Prigioni; G Tim Hardaway, Jr.; C Jeremy Tyler; G Shannon Brown

Free Agents: F Carmelo Anthony (early termination option); Amare Stoudemire (early termination option); Andrea Bargnani (early termination option); C Cole Aldrich; F Kenyon Martin; G Toure' Murray

Draft History: 2013: Tim Hardaway, Jr. (24)

2012: Kostas Papanikolaou (48)

2011: Iman Shumpert (17)

2010: Andre Rautins (38), Landry Fields (39)

2009: Jordan Hill (8)
