Williamson and Duke have actually won more games at Madison Square Garden since Dec. 1 than the Knicks. “If they draft me, I would love to play for the Knicks,” the 6-foot-7 Williamson said after Duke beat Texas Tech last month at the Garden. “I don’t really care where I go, just the experience of being in the NBA. Whoever wants me and whoever sees the most in me, that’s where I want to be.” Williamson and the No. 2 Blue Devils, meantime, host another New York team on Saturday when Chris Mullin and St. John’s come calling.

The Knicks will also have cap space to pursue a free agent like Kevin Durant during the all-important summer of 2019. They could also attempt to flip their draft pick for Anthony Davis assuming Davis isn’t dealt to the Lakers or another team before the summer. Davis’s agent, Rich Paul, let the Pelicans know this week he wanted to be traded and wouldn’t sign a five-year supermax contract worth $240 million.
