Jordan Hill might not be on most teams' radars in a normal draft year, but with what is perceived as a weak draft class, Hill found his name being called in New York City Thursday night, appropriate considering that will be his new home.

It's also appropriate that he heard boos from New York fans when his name was called. There is no home crowd tougher to please than Knicks fans, so Hill has his work cut out for him.

The good news for Knicks fans is, Hill is one of the more versatile big men in the draft, with the smooth moves to operate from the high post position as well as the size to bang down low. He will be a deadly pick-and-roll or pick-and-pop big man with his ability to step out and hit a jumper or slash to the bucket.
