Sam Vecenie Big Board Version 8.0 Final ranking and tiers of the top 120 draft prospects on his board

R.J. Barrett averaged 22.6 points and 7.6 rebounds as a freshman at Duke this past season.

The Knicks were not interested in moving down for just those two picks.

They could flip that pick in order to move up for Barrett and they're also considering moving back, according to a report from ESPN. 1 and 4 overall picks.

After the Anthony Davis blockbuster trade, this year's draft could be one of the most unpredictable in recent memory. Williamson and Barrett are former teammates and close friends.

The Memphis Grizzlies have the second overall pick and are said to be locked in on Murray State point guard, with Barrett supposedly going third to the Knicks.

Lee also posted a snap with Wozniacki, who wore an Oscar de la Renta gown for the big day, simply stating: "Husband and wife". She captioned it, "Best weekend of my life" followed by a love heart emoji.

Meanwhile, the Pelicans could have Duke 2.0 on their hands by pairing a smooth operator in Barrett and a rim destroyer in Williamson, giving them a bright future ahead, even if it means losing some compensation in the process.

Where will the Pelicans' No. 4 pick end up?

According to ESPN's Jonathan Givony, the Hawks have made 8 and 10 available to the Knicks at No. 3 and the Pelicans, who now have No. 4, but were turned down by NY.

The Timberwolves, Celtics and Bulls are all reportedly trying to trade up with the Pelicans with Garland in mind, and Garland might not be the best fit for the team given the presence of Ball and underrated star Jrue Holiday.

As for the Knicks, Berman reported they are most likely staying at No. 3.
