When the New York Knicks selected Frank Ntilikina over Dennis Smith Jr. with the eighth overall pick of the 2017 NBA Draft, many felt that the Knicks had made a mistake.
There were even some within the Knicks organization who felt that Smith was the better talent.
Well, now, we are two years into the careers of both guards, and we still don’t really have an answer as to who is better.
However, the Dallas Mavericks—who ended up taking Smith ninth overall—have put Smith on the trading block and seem very poised to move him prior to the Feb. 7 trade deadline.
Could things come full circle with New York making a play for the 21-year-old?
Don’t count on it.
