  • Record six Canadians selected in 2019 NBA Draft

For the New York Knicks, that provided an opportunity for a blow straight to the heart of pained fans everywhere.

Knicks fans at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn actually embraced the team's move to pick RJ Barrett with the No. 3 overall pick, and started chanting his name in the arena.

NY was "locked in" on the former Blue Devil despite hosting Darius Garland for a private workout Wednesday, who the Knicks were "seriously considering" at the time, according to ESPN. "We love a lot of things about this young man starting with his tremendous competitive level; his desire to want to be great as a basketball player. He's highly accomplished. He had a tremendous freshman season here at Duke". Barrett finished second behind Williamson for ACC Player of the Year, and ACC Rookie of the Year. Initially, his teammate, Zion Williamson, was considered to be the target for NY going into the lottery, but they wound up at No. 3 despite the best lottery odds and with the other Duke star from last year's 32-win team as a result.

The Knicks reportedly rejected an offer from the Atlanta Hawks for the No. 3 pick. "We're going to have to cut some National Basketball Association players from the [National] Team this summer, but we'll see".

"From our (intelligence) Memphis was pretty locked into their picks", Perry said.

"I think we're asking them (the fans) to continue to be patient. He just turned 19 last Friday, but he's been a part of the Canadian basketball program since [he was] a little guy, always played up".

Without missing a beat, his new coach, David Fizdale, responded, "Welcome to NY", drawing loud laughs from the assembled crowd.

"I'm built for this", Barrett said before the draft, via CBS Sports. The Knicks selected Knox (No. 9) and Robinson (No. 36) in 2018. It also extends Canada's streak to 10 consecutive seasons with a player drafted, including 23 total since 2011.

While praising the newest Knick's all-around game, Perry stressed Barrett must improve as shooting threat.
