Knicks 'Dying' To Select Obi Toppin

Obi Toppin is considered unlikely to fall beyond the New York Knicks at No. 8.

\"I think eight is definitely the lowest he goes,\" said Jonathan Givony on The Lowe Post. \"The guy who recruited him all year who signed him, you know, is running the team that has the number eight pick. I think from all understanding, he\'s dying to get Obi Toppin. There\'s nobody that he trusts more in this draft. We\'re talking about Leon Rose and the Knicks.

\"I can\'t see any scenario that Toppin goes below eight. I think honestly he\'s going four or five. I really don\'t think he\'s going very far. He was the best player in college basketball. They were a number one seed. He fits the modern NBA offensively really, really well.\"

Toppin is widely considered one of the most NBA ready players in the draft with his skill-set on offense, though there are some concerns about his defense.
