Dieng on Knicks: 'I Think I Can Fit In'

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Louisville coach Rick Pitino, who's pretty connected in NBA circles, expects Gorgui Dieng to be drafted between 12th and 20th in the first round of next Thursday's NBA draft. If Pitino's right, Dieng won't be available when the Knicks pick at 24. But if he's wrong, the Knicks may jump at the opportunity to take the ex-Cardinals big man. And he'd be happy to land in New York. "I think I can fit in here," Dieng said Tuesday after working out for the Knicks. He later added: "I don't really care [where I get drafted]. I'm just looking for longevity." Longevity is hard to find in the NBA, but Dieng could be a good fit for the Knicks right now.
