The New york Knicks are set to host six NBA Draft hopefuls tomorrow in their first pre-draft workout.
None are being touted very highly and none may be drafted in the first round, but they will get a look from the Knicks, nonetheless.
Here are some highlights from the attendees:
6’1″ 195lb Isaiah Canaan is a four-year PG out of Murray State.
6′ 4″ 210lb SG, Brandon Triche, from Syracuse that has started every game for ‘Cuse.
6’7″ 215lb F, Deshaun Thomas out of Ohio State scored 19.8 ppg in his final season with the Buckeyes.
6’7″ 240lb senior F, Murphy Holloway out of Ole Miss nearly averaged a double-double scoring 14.5 ppg and grabbing 9.7 boards per game.
6’11″ 213lb F, Norvel Pelle
And rounding out the six is 6’11″ 215lb C, A.J. Matthews from D-III Farmingdale State. Matthews is originally from Brooklyn, N.Y.
Out of all these the Knicks are not very likely to take any with the 24th pick in the draft. They may even trade their pick, but a second round pick may be used to take any one of them. I personally would lean toward Isaiah Canaan if I had to pick one from this group. He doesn’t have great size, but may be the most NBA ready out of this group.
