With the seventh overall pick in the 1991 GAH draft, the New York Knicks select Gheorghe Muresan from Romania.
The Knicks have a long history of picking up talent from abroad. They do it again selecting the tallest player in the class. At 7'7" and 303 lbs, the young center will bring the team size and talent. While injuries are always a risk for players so big, his presence in the paint will be a huge boost for New York hopes to return to the playoffs next season. Not only he has a big frame, but he also crashes boards hard and alter almost any shot near the rim.
