New York Knicks point guard Frank Ntilikina received high praises from his peer competitor Donovan Mitchell of the Utah Jazz. Donovan Mitchell stated,

He’s one of the toughest defenders I’ve had to face. He’s a guy I really respect in this league just because he goes and does it the right way. He’s really quiet but really efficient, the way he’s able to lock in. Imo

Frank Ntilikina is a plus defender and intangibles guy for the Knicks. The guard from Strasbourg is becoming a valuable and efficient weapon for the New York Knicks off the bench. Some wonder if the Knicks already have their point guard of the future in Ntilikina. There are some who believe the Knicks should draft the best player possible on draft night instead of drafting for positional needs.

With tantalizing talent at the top of the mock draft such as Obi Toppin, Anthony Edwards, and James Wiseman, Leon Rose and the Knicks will need to make some important decisions and crucial evaluations. LaMelo Ball has been linked to the Knicks through current mock drafts and his dad’s interview with FS1’s Uninterrupted.

Leon Rose has been connected to Frank Ntilikina. Leon Rose represented Ntilikina during his first two seasons in the NBA. Even though Ntilikina changed agents, Ntilikina’s respect level for Leon Rose has never wavered,
According to Ntilikina,

Leon is an expert in his job. He knows what he’s doing. He was a great agent and I’m sure he’s going to do great things here. Coming in the league, I didn’t know what to expect. I was just ready for whatever. And it’s been a dream, Now I’ve just got to see what’s ahead and keep building. So it is what it is. I’m just focusing on being the best player I can be in the future and helping my team be the best team it can.
