The Knicks would reportedly take Jordan Hill over Stephen Curry in a heartbeat.

The New York Post has reported that Knicks president Donnie Walsh likes Hill, and feels as though there is a better chance of the forward falling than Curry.

Walsh was scheduled to watch Hill during a solo workout on Tuesday.

"If draft day comes and goes and he's on their roster, it's a very good day for the Knicks," said one NBA GM. "He rebounds, defends, scores, and the key is he can run. Bigs that can run is a requisite in Mike's [D'Antoni's] way of playing."

Still don't see what's the big deal about Jordan Hill...
Guess it's just a weak draft.

He has a very high ceiling and he's only been playing organized ball for a few years. Plus he had to deal with having 3 different coaches in 3 years at arizona.

I'll tell you though, I watched him all 3 years in college. If somebody would have told me that he would be a lottery pick during his freshman year I would have laughed in their face. He really has improved so much in just a short amount of time.

Kid can be solid, but he's no All-Star. He's too slow. I've seen him at Arizona, and I honestly don't think he can catch up with D'Antoni's system, yet alone the NBA. His post game is suspect (he's JUST learning the critical aspects of them now), he's not that big, and his jumpshot is way inconsistent.
