The New York Knicks front office leaves no stone unturned in their quest for talent ahead of the 2020 NBA Draft. With that in mind, they were one of several teams interviewing No. 1 of JUCO recruit Jay Scrubb, who had pledged in Louisville before declaring the draft, according to Adam Zagoria.
He certainly wouldn’t have been the first Scrubb to play for the Knicks in the past 20 years. Take it? Take it?
Anyhoo … Scrubb is a 6’6 “shooting guard with ideal size and wing athleticism. He averaged 20.2 points and 8.9 rebounds per game last season on a 0.549 cut line. / 4,464 / 7979. Those numbers are crazy, of course, but keep in mind that he did it in junior college.
Surprisingly, there is a large amount of prominent Scrubb footage available on YouTube. As you would expect, he looks like a man among boys.
It is quite rare for a JUCO player to be drafted – Donta Smith (number 34 in total in 2004) was the last player to do so. But this draft is notoriously weak, so maybe Scrubb has a chance.
