20. New York Knicks - Tyler Smith, F, G League Ignite

There's a chance the New York Knicks end up with a couple of first-round picks in this year's NBA Draft. With as deep as their roster is at the moment, you'd have to imagine that this will be an opportunity for them to upgrade their roster in a big way. But if the Knicks end up keeping their picks, they could look to continue to add raw young talent to their build. One prospect that could be on their radar at No. 20 is Tyler Smith.

Smith is a versatile big man with the chance to develop into a legit stretch 4 or 5 at the next level. If he can continue to prove that he can stretch defenses with a consistent 3-point shot, he's easily going to translate as a first-round pick in this year's NBA Draft. There will be one team willing to take a shot at his potential at his position.

The Knicks could be a fit, especially if they do end up moving on from Julius Randle and/or Mitchell Robinson at some point in the next calendar year. And if the Knicks do make a move for a star player, that'd almost be a given. The Knicks could start to reload their frontcourt with a prospect like Smith.
