NBA Mock Draft: New York Knicks Select Allen Crabbe From California

New, 1 comment

SB Nation's NBA Network conducted a mock draft with bloggers from each team site making or trading their "team's" pick. We continue with the twenty-fourth pick in the 2013 NBA Mock Draft with Posting & Toasting selecting Allen Crabbe from California.

NBA Mock Draft Pick #24 -- Allen Crabbe, Guard, California

SB Nation's Knicks blog Posting & Toasting explains the pick:

The Knicks could use either a shooting, two-way wing or a useful big man with the 24th pick. P&T was unmoved by the remaining big men (including Steven Adams, but mainly because he's considered a bit of a project and the Knicks don't have time for that. Mike Woodson would punt that guy.), so we turned to the wings. Reggie Bullock was the target, but the Pacers did us yet another disservice by stealing him, so Crabbe it is. He's a terrific outside shooter, which is something the Knicks need, and could benefit mightily on offense from less responsibility/usage in a system where he's not the best scorer. Crabbe also seems like a guy with the savvy and size to become a decent NBA defender, and the Knicks could always use more perimeter D.

But mostly we drafted him because we like his ears. Also, tons of nickname/pun potential.
