R.J. Barrett has known primarily success throughout the last several years. After leading Montverde to an undefeated season and GEICO Championship, he helped Duke go 32-6, though they were not able to win the NCAA Tournament.
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.
