Berman

MIAMI — Former Knicks president and coach Isiah Thomas said coach Mike Woodson’s team had “a great year’’ despite a second-round KO, and believes it will get better by using the Spurs’ blueprint of improving role players.

“I think they had a great year, won the Atlantic, got eliminated by what we know now is a much greater Indiana team than anyone gave credit to,’’ Thomas said on the AmericanAirlines Arena floor before the Heat’s 103-100 overtime win over the Spurs in Game 6 of the NBA Finals Tuesday night. “[Roy] Hibbert was the difference in the series. He became the best center in the East.’’

Asked if the Knicks have topped out considering their salary-cap situation this summer, Thomas said, “They got to keep improving. Watching this series, if it has shown us anything with San Antonio, your role players can get better every year.

“Right now, if the Knicks are going to improve, it’s going to have to be through the draft, development of role players and some of their core players. I thought Carmelo Anthony was probably the most improved player on the team. I think they got to get better with their role players and use San Antonio as the model.’’

Thomas is still close friends with Woodson and former Indiana teammate, general manager Glen Grunwald — not to mention keeping his relationship with owner James Dolan. It is why there’s always speculation Thomas could, in the future, return to the organization in an important capacity — and still gives his input.

Mavs are trying to get rid of their first round pick and the Knicks are one of the teams trying to acquire it...the problem is the Mavs want either a draft pick for next year (don't have one) or a trade that involves them moving Marion (and i don't see that happening either)

The Knicks hold the 24th overall selection in the upcoming NBA Draft, and they've have worked out many prospects this month who could be available when they pick.

They could go for a guard or a wing, but there could be some intriguing big men on the board that might be able to step in as Tyson Chandler's backup. We asked some of our contributors which one intrigues them the most. Here are their answers.

Gorgui Dieng (Louisville)

Gorgui Dieng capped off an impressive career at Louisville with a National Championship this past March. The Senegalese center also leaves college as the reigning Big East Defensive Player of the Year and as a first team All-Big East performer. Upon becoming a regular in Coach Rick Pitino's starting lineup his sophomore year, Dieng averaged 9.1 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 3.2 blocks per game. In his junior year, he upped those numbers slightly to 9.8 ppg, 9.4 rpg while his blocks slid to just 2.5 per game.

Already 23 years old, Dieng is somewhat of a known quantity. In other words, what you see is likely what you'll get. The Knicks are quite obviously in 'win now' mode and thus, it could make sense for the Knicks to draft a player like Dieng. Adding a polished defensive big man to the rotation could be one of their objectives this offseason. Finding a way to lighten Tyson Chandler's workload could help the Knicks make a deep playoff run next season.

Dieng is a rim-protector of the highest quality who can also step out and knock down a mid-range jumper at the other end. Dieng would also allow the Knicks to match up with the bigger lineups they'll see next season from the Chicago Bulls, Indiana Pacers, Brooklyn Nets, and potentially the Boston Celtics. A winner and a proven commodity, Dieng could be a perfect addition to this Knicks roster if he's available.

Mike Muscala (Bucknell)

Standing almost 7-feet tall, Mike Muscala leaves college as Bucknell's all-time leading scorer. A four-time All-Patriot League selection, Muscala improved each year in nearly every statistical category. But despite senior year averages of 18.7 points, 11.1 rebounds and 2.4 blocks per game, Muscala has been somewhat overlooked due because he didn't play in a power conference like the Big Ten or Pac-12.

Despite the lack of recognition, he appears to have the skills to become a successful NBA big man: he's adept offensively, both inside and out, having shown the ability to consistently knock down 18- to 20-foot jumpers and score in the low post with either hand. He shot 50% from the field and 80% from the free throw line in college, and his agility and length make him a proficient defender. Plus, we already know he'll look sharp in a Knicks jersey because Bucknell's colors are orange and blue.

Tony Mitchell (North Texas)

The draft is approaching and the Knicks have invited several players in for some pre-draft workouts, but the one that intrigues me the most is North Texas Forward Tony Mitchell.

Mitchell stands 6"8" with a solid frame that will help defend big bodies and he has flashed above average athleticism. He has plus shot-blocking potential due to his massive 7'3" wingspan. His draft projection is on par with the Knicks selection which will be the 24th overall pick and we could see Mitchell fill a roster spot next year.

only reason i dont have Gorgui Dieng on my list is cause i doubt he'll still be available unless teams draft a dude just to have him sit out in Europe for a year or two....would def. squeeze him in my top 3

Tommy Dee pretty much co-signed (unintentionally) my scenario for Reke....a deal involving Chandler but for that to work Cousins has to get moved first somewhere to create the need for a big man....would love Cousins' talent but too bad it's attached to his immaturity and that's the last thing this team needs, a headache

With Carmelo Anthony designated as their power forward of the future, the Knicks feel they can use more than just another pure point guard when the NBA Draft arrives on Thursday.

Last season’s decision to switch Anthony to the four has opened up a hole for a genuine small forward/shooting guard who can defend and shoot the 3-pointer. The Knicks averaged just 88 points in the playoffs, and feel they need another perimeter scoring option.

Considering their point-guard-less roster following the retirement of Jason Kidd — now the coach of the Nets — it will be a vexing decision to pass on a pure point guard such as South Dakota State’s Nate Wolters with the 24th pick.

But if the right swingman falls to them who can shoot the 3 and defend, they will snap him up. With Anthony at power forward, they never had a genuine starting small forward, which is why they started two point guards last season.

“They are looking for help on the perimeter,’’ said one person briefed on the Knicks’ draft strategy. “A small forward would be nice. They lost to Indiana and got outrebounded, but Tyson Chandler wasn’t right. They feel they can get a big man in free agency.’’

The swingmen on their radar are Michigan’s Tim Hardaway Jr., California shooting guard Allen Crabbe, North Carolina’s Reggie Bullock and New Mexico’s Tony Snell.

Wolters, the 6-foot-4 point guard, has intrigued them too. He likely will be the only pure point guard left by the time they select. If they go the point-guard route, they want a playmaker, not a scoring point guard such as undersized Isaiah Canaan of Murray State.

Their preference of having Miami point guard Shane Larkin fall to them at 24 is a pipe dream. Agent Happy Walters refused to have Larkin work out for the Knicks because he believes his client won’t fall past 19.

Of Wolters, NBA draft consultant Chris Ekstrand said: “He’s got great floor vision — able to see plays before they happen — innate point-guard instincts. The problem is his foot speed. But you’ll see him make a lot of passes guys can’t make, and his perimeter shot is very good.

“He’s got a lot of boxes checked, but he’s just not that fast. But neither was Steve Nash.’’

At small forward, Bullock could be a good fit. Ryan Blake, another NBA draft consultant, said the UNC junior is more NBA-ready, coming out of the Tar Heels environment.

“He’s got that big-time experience, he defends and hits 44 percent of his 3-pointers,’’ Blake said. “The only knock is you’d like to see him be more aggressive as a scorer.’’

However, one Eastern Conference scout said Bullock doesn’t have the ability to create his own shot, but adds he’s “tough’’ and an “excellent spot-up shooter.’’

There are no offensive worries about Crabbe.

“He can be one of the lethal outside shooters,’’ Blake said. “He’s a pretty smooth player, 6-6, strong, good size.’’

However, one team executive called Crabbe “a below-average defender.’’

Hardaway is a bigger name who has experience in big moments.

“He’s a catch-and-shoot type of kid,’’ Ekstrand said. “There’s nothing similar to his father. He’s a catch-and-shoot type of kid who’s going to play off the ball his whole career. His future is on how consistent he shoots the ball from the perimeter.’’

Snell is a smooth scorer who can “put it on the floor with the best of any of them and create his own shot.’’

Glen Rice Jr., of Georgia Tech, son of the former Knick, worked out for the Knicks, but appears a reach at 24.

With the point- guard group looking slim when the Knicks’ pick comes up, Mike Woodson, a defensive coach, is primed to add perimeter offense, especially since J.R. Smith is no guarantee to re-sign.

If we keep the 24 I'm hoping for Reggie Bullock, but if he gets we should take Nate Wolters. Kid's nice man, reminds me of a better scoring Jason Williams
