A few weeks ago, the Brain Trust of the New York Knicks toured south for an exercise. They exercised Devon Wassell of Florida United and Alabama point guard Kira Lewis. Looking at Wasser and Lewis, they were obviously impressed.
But now the game begins. If they want Vasil or Lewis, then when the Knicks are selected at No. 8, both players may appear. Then, they may decline, and if the Knicks buy back, they may appear.
According to Marc Berman, the front office is considering this situation.
“Sources pointed out that the Knicks are weighing whether Vassell or Lewis are worthy of the eighth pick, or whether they should lower some odds to acquire assets, or have a chance to seize any of them.

One thing I found interesting: In this draft, Vassell is often compared to another wide guard, Isaac Okoro, Auburn. But the Knicks only interviewed Okoro, but did not solve him. Does this mean that the front desk prefers Vassell?
In this video, Vassell discusses ways to exercise with Thibodeau. (Warning: The child’s voice is bass.)
Devin Vassell worked with the Knicks in a church in Georgia:
“[Coach Thibodeau] A great coach… Everything is very good for the Knicks. If I can become a member of that team, it will be a lucky thing. ”Pic.twitter.com/lS9kwiBvpC
