Say whatever else you want about Phil Jackson as an executive, but he has shown a willingness to scour the globe for talent.

The big prize: Kristaps Porzingis, whom the Knicks drafted No. 4 last year.

But the Knicks will also look overseas to fill out the roster.

David Pick:

The Knicks acquired Hernangomez, the No. 35 pick, on draft night last year. He played with Porzingis in Spain. Hernangomez is a 6-foot-11, 21-year-old center with a solid all-around skill set, though his athleticism is limited.

Mindaugas Kuzminskas is a 6-foot-9 26-year-old small forward who could get some minutes behind Carmelo Anthony.
