Knicks look overseas for help with No 8 pick

GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) Phil Jackson again looked overseas for the answer to the New York Knicks' woes.

The Knicks president selected Frank Ntilikina with the No. 8 pick Thursday night in the NBA draft, hoping to pair the athletic French guard with frustrated Latvian big man Kristaps Porzingis as New York's team looks to end years of futility.

New York had several point guards to choose from, including North Carolina State's Dennis Smith Jr., selected ninth overall by the Dallas Mavericks, and Kentucky's Malik Monk, taken 11th by the Charlotte Hornets. Instead, the mercurial Jackson, chose to take an 18-year-old mostly unknown to a U.S. audience and the highest player drafted from the French professional league.
