Knicks To Host Withey, Four Others In Monday Pre-draft Workout

The Knicks resume their pre-draft workouts on Monday with the following five players visiting MSG Training Center:

Lorenzo Brown, Guard, 6-5, 186, North Carolina State, Senior

Brown transormed himself into a pure point guard during his time at N.C. State, giving him excellent size for the position at the next level. He has wiry strength and smooth, if not dynamic, athleticism, according to DraftExpress. Only a 42% shooter (26% from three), Brown relies on excellent handles and a quick first step when looking to create offense for himself. 

Myck Kabongo, Guard, 6-1, 180, Texas, Sophomore

Kabongo is another pass first point guard. After a promising freshman year, he was limited to only 11 games this past season because of an NCAA suspension stemming from some airfare and private workouts he accepted. DraftExpress says: "He has very good natural point guard instincts, displays a consistently high basketball IQ, and is extremely unselfish. Combine that with his excellent court vision and these are extremely promising qualities for a point guard prospect to have."

Allen Crabbe, Guard, 6-6, 210, California, Junior

Crabbe possesses prototypical size for an NBA shooting guard, with the stroke to match (36% from three). He often received extra attention from defenses as the Golden Bears' go-to scorer, but he shot 53.6% on open spot up opportunities, according to Synergy Sports Technology.

Jeff Withey, Center, 7-0, 235, Kansas, Senior

Withey, a popular selection for the Knicks in some recent mock drafts, is best known for his incredible shot blocking acumen. The former volleyball player is a legitimate 7-footer with a 7-3 wingspan and above average athleticism for a big man. In just over 30 minutes per game as a Jayhawk last year, he averaged an outrageous 3.9 blocks. 

Mike Muscala, Center, 6-11, 239, Bucknell, Senior

Muscala showed improvement every year at Bucknell, finishing up as a well-rounded big man prospect who could wind up getting drafted into the first or early second round. He has an array of post moves and can score with either hand, and his work in the weight room has helped become a stronger, more NBA-ready defender over the course of his career.
