The Knicks will host the following six players in a pre-draft workout at MSG Training Center on Thursday:
B.J. Young, Guard, 6-3, 180, Arkansas, Sophomore
Young broke onto the scene with a strong freshman year in the SEC and considered entering last year's draft before deciding to return for another season. His shooting numbers dropped as a sophomore, but he managed to up his assists while cutting down his turnovers. DraftExpress projects Young as a late second round prospect, but says that he "remains one of the most electric open-court scorers in college basketball, blessed with terrific quickness pushing the ball up the floor and the ability to finish above the rim."
Brandon Paul, Guard, 6-4, 200, Illinois, Senior
Paul is an explosive athlete, despite lacking prototypical size for an NBA shooting guard. He can break down defenders in isolation and has shown he's comfortable as a go-to scorer. Hoping to get drafted in the second round, Paul profiles as a potential combo guard off the bench, according to DraftExpress.
Reggie Bullock, Guard/Forward, 6-7, 205, North Carolina, Junior
Bullock has a chance to be drafted in the first round thanks to his excellent long-range shooting ability and feel for the game. He was a 43% 3-point shooter in his junior season at North Carolina, and has plenty of size to play the wing in the NBA. What he lacks in top end athleticism, he makes up for by knowing where to be and rebounding the ball well for his position. Scouts project him to be a similar type of player to the Spurs' Danny Green, another former Tar Heel.
James Ennis, Guard/Forward, 6-7, 210, Long Beach State, Senior
Another rangy wing with shooting ability, Ennis is seen as a second round prospect by most pundits. He shot 36% from three as a senior and proved to be a versatile scorer with good length for an NBA small forward. His 6-11 wingspan and overall athleticism lead scouts to believe that he has the potential to be a solid defender at the next level.
Romero Osby, Forward, 6-8, 232, Oklahoma, Senior
Osby enters the draft as a senior with solid numbers at the University of Oklahoma: 16 points and seven assists in 28.5 minutes per game. He's a bit undersized for an NBA power forward but he shot over 50% in his two years in Norman after transferring from Mississippi State.
Kenny Kadji, Forward/Center, 6-11, 242, Miami, Senior
DraftExpress called him "one of the mot versatile players you'll find in college basketball," capable of scoring in a wide variety of ways. At his size, he has the potential to develop into a legitimate stretch-4 in the NBA thanks to his deft shooting touch and range. Most pundits see him as a candidate to get drafted in the second round.
