The Knicks moved up from the 55th to the 47th pick to select Michigan forward Ignas Brazdeikis in the second round of the NBA Draft.
Sources confirmed to SNY Insider Ian Begley that the Knicks sent the 55th overall pick and cash considerations to the Kings in order to move up. The Kings selected Brazdeikis with the 47th pick since the trade had not yet been finalized, but the deal was made official later in the night.
Listed at 6-foot-7, 220 pounds, Brazdeikis played one season at Michigan. With the Wolverines, Brazdeikis averaged 14.8 points, 5.4 rebounds and 0.5 blocks per game.
He could do a little bit of everything for the Wolverines, as he shot 39.2 percent from the beyond the arc and was also a 77 percent free-throw shooter.
He led the Wolverines in scoring as a freshman, an impressive feat considering first-round pick Jordan Poole was also on the roster, and was named Big Ten Freshman of the Year as well as second team All-Big Ten.
Nicknamed "Iggy", Brazdeikis was born in Lithuania but was raised in Canada. Brazdeikis played alongside fellow Knicks draft pick RJ Barrett for Canada in 2016 during U-17 World Cup.
