Editor’s Note: This feature does not reflect the views and opinions of the New York Knicks front office staff regarding the 2012 NBA Draft.

Tonight at 7 PM on ESPN, the NBA will welcome a new crop of players from a deep draft class. The Knicks are prepping for the No. 48 overall pick in the second round barring any trades this afternoon or tonight. There have been some hidden gems discovered in the second round throughout NBA history. Notable players include: Marc Gasol, Stephen Jackson, Monta Ellis, Carlos Boozer and Manu Ginobili. Don’t forget Landry Fields was a second rounder and became a starter in a short amount of time in New York.

Here’s a look at some of the prominent mock drafts around the Web and analysis on these prospects:

ESPN.com, NBA.com and DraftExpress.com: Khris Middleton
Interesting that these three major draft content providers all have the Knicks selecting the Texas A&M small forward. Middleton averaged 13.2 points, five rebounds, and 2.3 a.ssists per game in his junior campaign. Considered a classic swingman, Middleton is 6-7, 210 pounds with a significant wingspan. Unfortunately, he dealt with a knee injury last season but displayed a nice midrange game and floor vision during his three years at Texas A&M. Scouts believe he owns an NBA-ready offensive arsenal, especially his ability to work off the dribble and pull-up in transition. There also seems to be a consensus opinion that Middleton has upside and could develop his body over the next couple of years with an NBA training staff.

NBADraft.net: Justin Hamilton
According to DraftExpress.com, Hamilton registered the biggest hands at the Nets combine in late May. Draft guru Jonathan Givony lauded Hamilton’s agility during the drills and his range from the perimeter. Reportedly, the 7-foooter battled on the boards and worked extremely hard to improve his draft stock. It’s difficult to find legit centers in this year’s draft, which may bode well for a player with his size and touch around the rim.

CBS.com: Bernard James
Another big man on the mock draft list for the Knicks selection. James posted 10.8 points and 8.1 boards in 2011-12 for the Florida State Seminoles. At 27 years old, the senior is surprisingly old for this draft class but his skill set is intriguing. The athletic forward averaged 2.3 swats per outing last season and he also attacks the glass with an explosive vertical leap. James is a high-character prospect, considering he spent time in the Air Force before receiving a basketball scholarship to Florida State. In his words, “The military has helped me with how big of an organization it is. It’s helped me to see the big picture and understand it’s not all about you sometimes.”

More Potential Targets at No. 48:
Quincy Acy, Baylor
Scott Machado, Iona
Tyshawn Taylor, Kansas
Kim English, Missouri

thats' pretty much the guy I want but i don't see him falling all the way to 48...if he does, a lot of GM's should be fired

teams that could take him include, Utah, Pistons (especially since they just got rid of Ben Gordon), Hornets (depending more if they go after Austin Rivers, if he still there at 10) and the Raptors but i got a feeling Raptors take English

and Kostos is basically one of those players that's not GREAT at one thing but does it all, give him some experience and he'll be a nice role player. more of a smart player over athletic and worse case scenario, you can leave him in Europe for like a year or 2

Machado is another PG i would def. love if we get another 2nd rounder. he's more of the pure PG over Odom with Lin and possibly over vet PG we might sign, Odom sticks out more since he's more versatile. Tyshawn Taylor is another name i keep hearing that I wouldn't mind but i SERIOUSLY doubt he makes it past the Pistons in the second round.

"OK time to get serious: #Knicks would move up in 2nd if possible. Focus, ideally, would be on 2G (i.e.: Kim English, James Jenkins, et al)."

Howard Beck

"The N.B.A. and its players union are moving toward a settlement in the so-called Bird rights case that has temporarily clouded the future of the Knicks’ Jeremy Lin, according to two people briefed on the talks.

The most likely outcome is that Lin and three other players — including the Knicks’ Steve Novak — will retain some form of Bird rights, as affirmed last week by an arbitrator, according to one of the people briefed on the talks. But the talks were continuing Thursday, and the details of a settlement remained in flux.

An announcement could be made as soon as Friday, but no later than Saturday night, so that the affected players and their teams will have clarity before the free-agent period opens, at 12:01 a.m. Sunday.

The two people briefed on the talks asked for anonymity because negotiations were ongoing. "

if my two cents count for nething, pretty much a steal considering when we got him...the only flaw is he'll be in Europe for another year or two most likely BUT at least Machado didn't get drafted so we can still scoop him up.....least Kostas has another Knick teammate playing with him, Giorgos Printezis who we got during the Tyson Chandler trade....summer league will def. be a chance to check out some other dudes. like i said there's a chance we can get Machado for that and another dude i hope we get a look at is NY's own, Torey Thomas.

we'll find out what happens in the immediate future though, the Stern sh*t from what I'm reading should be decided by Saturday cause if it goes to Sunday, David Stern will be facing A LOT of heat since he's fu*king up the arms race known as Free Agency that starts on Sunday

Well this and the video you posted makes me feel alot better about this....plus I didn't know he was on the same squad as the Euro dude the Knicks got

I'm surprised as hell Machado wasn't drafted and I gotta go check out this Torey Thomas dude.

Like you said though as long as Adolf Stern doesn't mess sh!t up things may get interesting.
