Canadian RJ Barrett isn't lacking confidence. The projected top-three pick in the upcoming 2019 NBA Draft met with the New York Knicks on Monday and he made it clear he won't be meeting with anyone else.

"No I do not, I won't be meeting with any other teams, so it's this and then the draft," Barrett told the media after his workout with the Knicks.

The Knicks currently hold the third overall pick in the draft which is set for Thursday, June 20th at Barclays Centre in Brooklyn.

Rumours have been swirling that the Knicks could end up moving the pick, but Barrett believes that if he's on the board when the Knicks step to the podium on draft night, he should be the name called.

"Hey man, you know if it ends up that I'm still there at three then sure I'd love for them to take me.

"This is the place I want to be, I hope they draft me."

Barrett averaged 22.6 points, 7.6 rebounds, 4.3 assists in 38 games for the Duke Blue Devils.
