Kira Lewis Jr. is arguably a top-10 guard in this year's NBA Draft. He recently spoke with SNY's Ian Begley on how he'd fit alongside centerpieces RJ Barrett and Mitchell Robinson if the Knicks were to select Lewis No. 8 overall.

He told reporters on Friday that he'd welcome the opportunity to play for "one of the more historic organizations" in the NBA.

"It's a big city. I'm coming to work as hard as I can, do my job, do something I love to do, which is compete, and win, and get better, and be the best person and teammate that I can be, and try to take whatever organization I'm going to to the next level," said the Alabama Crimson Tide guard.

As for Tar Heel Cole Anthony, he said that he has had no contact with the Knicks.
