The Knicks selected the 21-year-old 2016 All-Adriatic Defensive Player of the Year at the end of the second round, pushing towards the future. He is the 8th player selected from his team in the last four drafts, according to Fran Fraschilla. Jaramaz will undoubtedly be a draft-and-stash player, a guy that will not be coming to New York anytime soon.

Fran Fraschilla had a jersey from Jaramaz’s team on the set during the draft, so I suppose that’s one positive?

Jaramaz is a 6'3", 194 pound guard that averaged 14.5 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 3.7 assists last year for Mega Bamax in 16 games. We likely won’t hear much about Jaramaz for the time being, but for now, stick him in the back pocket and we’ll see how this pans out.

UPDATE: 12:33pm EST

The New York Times reports Jaramaz will play for the Knicks in the Summer League. The ‘Bockers will be in Orlando again for the first week in July.
