Carmelo to fans: No problem with pick

In a reply to a fan on Instagram, Carmelo Anthony wrote that he 'can't wait' to see Kristaps Porzingis. He also called Porzingis a 'steal.'

Kristaps Porzingis too risky for Knicks

New York's selection of the Latvian forward at No. 4 was the most controversial pick in the draft. Porzingis has high potential but still needs time to develop.
