“I won’t be meeting with any other teams,” Barrett told reporters after working out with the Knicks on Monday. “This is the place I want to be, so I hope they draft me.”
However, it’s still uncertain if the Knicks end up keeping the pick, as they are among the teams inquiring with the Pelicans about a trade for Anthony Davis, league sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Barrett, who turns 19 on Friday, broke Duke and ACC freshman scoring records while in college, averaging 22.6 points per game to go along with 7.6 rebounds and 4.3 assists.
The 6-7 forward was the presumptive No. 1 pick going into his freshman season at Duke, but was quickly overshadowed by the rise of teammate and fellow freshman Zion Williamson.
