Jordan HillAfter the Warriors took Stephen Curry, the New York Knicks adjusted to take Arizona forward Jordan Hill, who gives the club much-needed rebounding help and insurance should restricted free agent David Lee leave. Hill is a skilled player who should help bolster New York's post game and has the ability to run the floor in Mike D'Antoni's offense.

The Knicks obviously were relishing the opportunity to take Curry (as were the fans in attendance, who greeted Hill with a round of boos), but Hill would be a solid starter or key reserve. Hill could become the best player in the lottery in a few years -- behind Blake Griffin.
