NBA Mock Draft 2017: Full 1st-Round Projections & Updates

7. New York Knicks: De'Aaron Fox, PG, Kentucky

Age: 19 (December 20, 1997)

Size: 6-foot-3, 187 pounds

Their plans for free agency could change things, but it's pretty clear at this point the Knicks will go for a point guard. Beyond that, it's tough to a forecast. I continually go back and forth on Fox and France's Frank Ntilikina, while Dennis Smith Jr. could also be in play here.

For now, we'll go with Fox, an electrifying player who has the quickness to get to the rim at will. He would be an easy top-five pick if he had a more consistent jumper, but even without one, he has the rest of the tools to be the Knicks' long-term answer at point guard and a dangerous pick-and-roll partner with Kristaps Porzingis.
