The New York Knicks are set to work out the intriguing and realistic prospects Collin Sexton and Wendell Carter separately on Thursday.
According to Jonathan Givony of ESPN, point guard Collin Sexton and Wendell Carter are both set to work out for the New York Knicks on Thursday. Both prospects have tremendous upside and it’s looking more realistic by the day that the Knicks could see either available with the ninth pick.

Sexton is a highly athletic point guard that can slash to the basket and get out in transition. He needs to work on his shooting, but he’s got the physical tools and the makeup to become a successful starting point guard.
The Knicks currently have a logjam at point guard with Frank Ntilikina, Trey Burke, Emmanuel Mudiay—and to a certain extent Ron Baker. That being said, there’s always room on the roster for more talent.
Carter, while also highly athletic, makes his home in the frontcourt. The 6-foot-10 forward out of Duke has all the makings of the modern day big man. He can stretch the defense with his shot, defend the paint, and most importantly—he should be a nice complement to Kristaps Porzingis.
Scott Perry and Steve Mills are keeping all options open ahead of the draft. With the ninth pick, there’s no way for the Knicks to know who will be available when their time comes. Each workout is another chance for the front office to get a look at a possible cornerstone of the franchise.
