With the 3rd pick in the 2019 NBA Draft the New York Knicks selected R.J. Barrett.

Barrett averaged nearly 23 points, 8 rebounds, and 4 assists in his only season for the Blue Devils. He was a Consensus First Team All-American, First Team All-ACC and winner of the Jerry West Award.

The Knicks were the only team Barrett reportedly worked out for and he really wanted to be a Knick.

Barrett is Duke’s 18th Top 3 pick.
