NBA Draft 2011: New York Knicks Hold Double-Secret Workout
The New York Knicks held a secret workout today for six players, five of whom are projected to be picked late in the first round of the 2011 NBA Draft.
According to ESPN's Chris Sheridan, Providence's Marshon Brooks, Mississippi State's Ravern Johnson, Michigan's Darius Morris, Kansas' Josh Selby, Japan's Jeremy Tyler and USC's Nikola Vucevic attended the workout. It was the second Knicks workout for each prospect besides Johnson.
According to Sheridan, Johnson, a relative unknown, is "a 6-foot-7 shooting guard who made more than 40 percent of his 3-point attempts in each of his last two seasons."
ESPN's Chad Ford indicates Johnson would be a middle second-round pick.
The Knicks are still hoping to land BYU's Jimmer Fredette or Washington State's Klay Thompson, but they'd have to find a way to trade up to draft either sharpshooter. If they can't, Johnson becomes a viable option in the second round.
Ford's mock draft currently has the Knicks selecting Brooks with the 17th pick.
