Ledo, Mitchell Among Six Players in Friday Pre-draft Workout

After hosting potential draft prospects for workouts both Wednesday and Thursday, the Knicks will have the following six more to MSG Training Center on Friday:

Ricardo Ledo, Guard, 6-6, 180, Providence, Freshman

Ledo is seen as a high-upside prospect. Recruited by many of the top programs out of high school, he was ruled academically ineligible after deciding to attend Providence and had to sit out his entire freshman year. He has good size for an NBA lead guard and is seen by many as a very gifted offensive player; he's a good athlete, can create his own shot, and is a good ball handler.

Tahj Tate, Guard, 6-4, 190, Delaware State, Sophomore

Tate played 35 minutes a game for Delaware State in each of his two seasons, averaging 16.1 points as a freshman before falling to 12.8 this past season. He shot just under 50% from 2-point range and averaged about 2.5 assists during his college career.

Adonis Thomas, Guard/Forward, 6-7, 240, Memphis, Sophomore

Coming from Memphis, Thomas boasts a prototypical physical profile for an NBA small forward. He has upside thanks to his height, long wingspan (7'0) and touch in the midrange area.

Christian Watford, Forward, 6-9, 232, Indiana, Senior

Watford's calling card is his shooting ability. As a 3-point shooter, he improved each year in Bloomington and shot over 48 percent this past season. He's got good length, making him intriguing to scouts as a stretch-4 prospect. 

Tony Mitchell, Forward, 6-8, 235, North Texas, Sophomore

Mitchell has become one of the trendy picks for the Knicks in mock drafts recently. Many of the pundits like his potential as an NBA big; according to DraftExpress, his "physical attributes remain his greatest selling point...with excellent athleticism, a solid frame, and a very impressive 7'3 wingspan. He is capable of utilizing these tools effectively in his shot-blocking, rebounding and finishing around the basket."

Grant Jerrett, Forward, 6-10, 235, Arizona, Freshman

A former McDonald's All-American, Jerrett had to battle for minutes in a crowded (and talented) frontcourt this past season at Arizona. With even more talent on the way to Tucson this year, he decided to enter the NBA draft with hopes that his size and length would tempt a team to pick him.
