After declaring for the 2017 NBA Draft, Ntilikina instantly became one of the top international targets on NBA team's radars. The 6-foot-5 point guard has excellent size for the position, though he's still filling into his body and will need to put on weight at the next level. However, his upside is still through the roof and it landed him in the lottery as the eighth overall selection by the Knicks. Ntilikina is prided for his pass-first mentality, though he's got a decent mid-range game. He'll need to improve his three-point ability in order to avoid players sagging off him, but that's something that should develop relatively quickly over his first few years in the league. When you put his size, athleticism, passing ability and a growing offensive arsenaul together, it's easy to see why the Knicks fell in love with him. Adding on to that, Ntilikina has showcased an impressive versatility as a defender, which will go leaps and bounds to earn him some playing time early on. Still, Ntilikina is fairly skinny and needs to put on plenty of weight before seeing significant minutes against other NBA point guards. The Knicks no longer have Derrick Rose at point guard and brought in just Ramon Sessions during free agency, so they may have no choice but to throw Ntilikina into the fire early. With plenty of development still ahead of him, look for Ntilikina to start off in a bench role behind Sessions, though it may not be long before he ultimately pushes for a spot in the top unit on a team void of other point guard options.
