Report: New York Knicks will move focus to potential Anthony Davis deal if they win NBA Draft lottery

#AD

The New York Knicks have a 14% chance at landing the number one overall pick in Tuesday's Draft Lottery, and they already have some lofty plans for the pick should they get it.

While most teams would consider taking consensus No. 1 overall pick Zion Williamson, the Knicks might be looking to move the chance at taking Zion for disgruntled star Anthony Davis according to the Stadium's Shams Charania.

The deal would naturally be centred around the first overall pick and New York's ninth overall selection in last year's draft Kevin Knox.

Davis, who asked for a trade from New Orleans before the deadline in February, could be a piece to entice big-time potential free agents like Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving to join him in the Big Apple.

Davis had a slightly down year playing in only 56 games averaging 25.9 points, 12.0 rebounds, 3.9 assists, and 2.4 blocks.

Giving up the chance at selecting Williamson would mean the Knicks are potentially giving up on one of the most talked about prospects since LeBron James entered the NBA Draft in 2003.

The 18-year-old averaged 22.6 points, 8.9 rebounds, 2.1 steals and 1.8 blocks in 33 appearances for Duke this season.

He was the consensus National College Player of the Year and a consensus first-time All-American.
