Mock Draft: Lottery picks in an all-high school NBA Mock Draft

Have the New York Knicks found a winner that will bring them long-sought after success?

With the third pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, they selected the former ALL-USA Player of the Year.

In that 2017-18 season in which Montverde went 35-0, Barrett averaged 28.7 points, 8.5 rebounds, 4.5 assists, two blocks and 1.5 steals a game

He then led Team Canada to a championship in the FIBA U19 World Cup in July.

With him on board, maybe the Knicks can become a force once again.
