The New York Knicks could be looking into another big man in this year’s draft. Last year, the Knicks got a steal in Mitchell Robinson. Robinson turned out to be the Knicks best and most exciting rookie from last year’s draft class.
However, there are been reports that the Knicks will privately work out UCF’s Tacko Fall. Fall impressed numerous scouts at the combine and could be making waves. He was suppose to workout for the Knicks today, but will rescheduled due to travel issues, according to SNYs Ian Begley.
Despite being 7’7”, Fall bursted onto the college basketball scene with his play against Duke’s Zion Williamson in this year’s NCAA tournament. He has also set records at the combine for his 8-foot-2 1/4 wingspan and 10-foot-2 1/2 standing reach.
Could the Knicks privately working out Fall could mean that Robinson could be on the move if the team includes him in the Anthony Davis trade?
Robinson became a fan favorite due to his play this past season. He had excellent field goal percentage and became a blocking phenomenon. Robinson still comes cheap for the Knicks, with even better upside.
The Knicks own the 3rd pick in the draft and 55th pick. The team has also been tossing around the idea of trading Frank Ntilikina for another draft pick. Maybe Fall?
Fall could be in play for the Knicks if they are able to obtain another pick or if he is there when they pick at 55.
