The Knicks will work out UCLA point guard Aaron Holiday shortly before draft night, according to Ian Begley of ESPN. Holiday will have to make quite an impression to get drafted by New York. He’s currently ranked No. 17 by ESPN’s Jonathan Givony and the Knicks hold the No. 9 pick.
Texas A&M big man Robert Williams, ranked No. 12 by Givony, and Missouri State forward Alize Johnson worked out for the Knicks on Monday, according to another Begley post. Villanova guard Donte DiVincenzo was scheduled to work out for New York this week but it will not happen as scheduled, Begley adds.

Rationally it does not makes sense, but I still have a gut feeling the Hawks are going to pick Trae Young at #3.
Or trade down.
The Knicks are looking to trade up. Also they are looking to acquire a second # 1 pick. Lets see what pans out
Dodgethis hit the nail on the head.
I would love it if Jasean Tate makes it as a forward. 6-4 in shoes, 214, verve.
Surely a 6’3″ guy desirous of the ‘forward’ moniker can’t shoot; can’t dribble.
They’ll call him a guard but he does what he does. Fun to watch if you don’t get mad at him
The Hawks could always trade Schroeder to the Cavs and take Burke at 7.
