Well this would cause some uproar in New York.
Not because the position is set with a superstar, but because the Knicks have put so many trade, free agent and draft resources into finding the next lead guard at Madison Square Garden.

If NBADraft.net’s latest mock draft comes to fruition, we’ll soon add another name to the mix: Alabama scorer Collin Sexton, projected to land with the Knicks with the ninth pick.

The defensively stout Eagles remain the team to beat, but each of the last 13 Super Bowl winners haven’t repeated. Only 65 percent of the last 26 Super Bowl participants have made the playoffs the next season, and only two have gotten back to the Super Bowl.
The Eagles will have their work cut out for them.
In two games for the Giants last season, Smith completed 21 of 36 passes for 212 yards, one score and no interceptions. The Jets’ 2013 second-round pick, Smith has started 31 games in his five-year career.
