R.J. Hampton drawing interest from the Knicks
The Knicks are reportedly interested in drafting G RJ Hampton with their pick in 2020 NBA Draft.
The Knicks could potentially have an RJ-RJ backcourt. Hampton is drawing comparisons to Pacers’ guard Victor Oladipo. “RJ is the Swiss Army knife of this draft,” said Rashad Phillips of University of Detroit Mercy. “He’s one of the few prospects who can play anywhere because of his versatility.” Hampton averaged 8.8 points, 2.4 assists, 3.8 rebounds and 1.1 steals in NBL Australia this season. He’s a projected lottery pick in the latest mock drafts.
