The New York Knicks reportedly have a workout scheduled with Louisville guard Donovan Mitchell. He projects as a late lottery pick.

For the second straight day, the Knicks have reportedly scheduled a workout with a projected late lottery pick. This time it’s Louisville’s Donovan Mitchell.

According to Ian Begley of ESPN New York, New York has scheduled a workout with the combo guard. The Knicks reportedly talked to Portland about picking up one of their many first round picks (No. 15, No. 20, and No. 26).

Per Begley, the Knicks “are highly intrigued by Mitchell’s defensive ability and versatility.”

On Saturday, Begley said that the Knicks were going to work out another late lottery pick, Duke’s sharpshooting guard Luke Kennard, along with Kentucky’s Malik Monk. Monk projects to go in the top ten.

The Knicks are interested in a number of guards in the upcoming draft. Frank Ntilikina and Dennis Smith Jr. are their other two top targets. New York already brought in Smith, but they’re still waiting on Ntilikina.

DraftExpress has Mitchell ranked 11th in their top 100 prospects and being chosen 12th by the Detroit Pistons. Detroit is reportedly also shopping their pick.
