Knicks interested in Ex-Duke F Justise Winslow at No. 4

When the New York Knicks wound up with the No. 4 pick as a result of a disappointing Draft Lottery result, speculation of the Knicks trading the pick rose very quickly.

However, many recent reports indicate that New York is looking at the options they have with that No. 4 pick. This includes a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports last night which indicated that the Knicks are looking closely at freshman SF Justise Winslow out of Duke.

The 6-foot-6 225 pound Winslow averaged 12.6 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 2.1 assits per game during the 2014-2015 season and was one of the three Duke freshman who were major contributors to Duke’s 2015 national championship team along with C Jahlil Okafor and PG Tyus Jones, who are both also projected as first round picks with Okafor slated as a potential No. 1 pick.

Winslow will not be the only player working out for the Knicks this week, as former SMU commit PG Emmanuel Mudiay, who spent this past season playing overseas in China, is also slated to work out for the team this week.

Recent mock drafts from both DraftExpress and NBC Sports project that the Knicks will in fact use their No. 4 pick on the small forward.
