A huge roar let loose in the Barclays Center after NBA Commissioner David Stern announced that the Knicks had taken Michigan shooting guard Tim Hardaway Jr. with the No. 24 overall pick.
The Knicks opted to pick a wing player instead of a point guard or a big man to help offset the possible loss of J.R. Smith to free agency.
The Knicks reportedly also considered Allen Crabbe of Cal, Ricky Ledo of Providence and Reggie Bullock of North Carolina on the wing.
