New York Knicks point guard Frank Ntilikina has been one of the most underwhelming lottery picks in recent years. After the Knicks drafted Ntilikina with the No. 8 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, he has failed to score more than five points per game or shoot better than 37 percent from the field in each of his first two seasons in the league. In fact, Ntilikina produced a negative win share last season. However, the French international showed signs of improvement at the 2019 FIBA World Cup. Though Ntilikina only averaged 8.0 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game, he shackled Team USA point guard Kemba Walker in the quarterfinals and scored 16 points in the semifinals against Argentina.
