The Knicks Reportedly Have Interest In Luke Kennard At No. 8

New York reportedly has serious interest in the former Duke star.

Most NBA mock drafts have former Duke star Luke Kennard going in the middle of the first round.

One NBA team reportedly is considering taking him inside the top 10, though.

The New York Knicks have worked out the former Blue Devils standout and according to reports, there's interest in taking him at No. 8 overall.

It's probably more likely that the Knicks take someone like Kentucky's Malik Monk at No. 8 overall and then trade back into the first round to grab Kennard, if they really do love him.

But there's a decent chance that passing on Kennard at No. 8 will mean they're passing on him all together, so they're reportedly considering gambling on him inside the top 10.

Kennard, 21, averaged 19.5 points and 5.1 rebounds a game for the Blue Devils in 2016-17.

The 2017 NBA Draft is set for next Thursday night.
