Taken in the 2011 NHL draft in the 5th (134th overall) round, the undersized forward (5?8/165) was once deemed to be a late 1st rounder to early 2nd rounder. Shane McColgan has great speed with an edge to his game. McColgan was the runner-up to Ryan Nugent-Hopkins for Rookie of the Year in 2010 at the junior level. Watching a few of his games last season, McColgan backed down from no-one, but needs to be more consistent and discipline without the puck if he intends to make it to the next level.

McColgan?s junior career parallels with another former Ranger who is similar in size and also had an edge to his game and that is George McPhee. Comparing their junior stats, it?s remarkable how close they were. I would say that McColgan possesses much more speed and offensive skills than McPhee and should have a more productive career in terms of scoring and length of service at the NHL level. McColgan is expected to spend at least two more seasons in junior hockey before turning pro.

?JOE LACOB interview transcript/

(Carrying on from an earlier informal conversation when I asked if the Warriors knew they had to move up from 44 to 39 to get Jeremy Tyler?)

-LACOB: You asked me do we know if other teams were getting ready to buy a pick right there. Actually I talked to Bob who confirmed for me today that the Knicks were, at 40, all set to draft Jeremy Tyler. I can?t tell you if that?s fact or not fact, but that?s what I heard.

Let's be clear. The decision between Shumpert and Singleton to the Knicks was probably a toss up. And it's not like Singleton was a top 5 pick that fell. The agent stuff was part of a big process but wasn't THE reason for the decision.

As I always have, I will take Donnie Walsh at his word. I'm just saying, as I have for weeks, I would have voted heads, not tails.

Katz doesn't elaborate here, but did here. Of course it makes sense to me seeing he's the other player I would have drafted. The Thunder guaranteed Jackson as did the Celtics, as we reported weeks ago, although the Celts backed off after finding out that he wouldn't fall to 25. That's when they started shopping.

Interesting that Jackson's camp and Knicks brass couldn't come together on the information on his knee.

Just wanted to throw a few more thoughts out there. Number one is from me. I think of it this way. They could have kept Douglas or Fields and drafted Singleton. Now they have Shumpert and will likely now have to deal Douglas or Fields to help at another position. Just not sure that would have been Walsh's sole strategy considering Douglas and Fields were two of his better picks. Donnie is the ultimate team player, simple as that.

Steve from Ewing Theory believes that the Knicks were big losers...

My buddy Gibbs calls Walsh's last draft a fail...

We'll talk more about the draft today, but my initial thoughts on draft night have remained pretty consistent.

I probably shouldn't be over the top upset that the Knicks passed on Singleton in the sense that when I came to the conclusion I would draft him, it was very early in the mock draft stages.

It's not as if that matters, but Singleton is a better defender than Shumpert and is an instant rotation player. Shumpert now is in a back court with Fields, Billups and Douglas for two spots. It's not as if I dislike Shumpert, it's just that the pick has his agent's DNA written all over it. There were better players available in my opinion, as there always is in the draft, but I had Singleton rated as a lottery pick and felt as if he was the best player to fall.

Would I be surprised if Kemba Walker slid down to 17 and into the laps of his hometown Knicks in a similar fashion that Mark Jackson ended up at 18 some 2 decades ago?

Absolutely not.

There is the growing sentiment that it could happen and here's my two cents. Information, the GOOD STUFF, has just started coming out from teams over the past few days and in this day and age reporters can't sit on it. So I take what I hear from my sources with a grain of salt until about 48 hours before the draft goes down.

The Red Devils of Peekskill were the two-time defending state champions, and their star player, Mookie Jones, had already committed to play for Syracuse. ?Glens Falls was the underdog going in, but this was a huge opportunity for Jimmer to rise to the occasion and carry his school to the title. ?The game didn't exactly turn out that way, though.

The Glens Falls Civic Center is a modest arena, accommodating just over 4,800 fans. ?It serves as a hockey arena, and the court rests on top of the covered ice with folding chairs set up to fill the rest of the empty space. ?Every single seat was filled that night. ?Nearly everyone in attendance was cheering for Jimmer and Glens Falls. ?As intimidating as this must have been for visiting Peekskill, it must have added some pressure for Jimmer and his teammates. ?Glens Falls got off to a quick start and led 19-14 after the first quarter. ?Peekskill started to assert itself athletically in the second quarter and took the lead at one point, but Glens Falls maintained a slim three-point lead, 32-29, at the end of the first half. ?Peekskill had all of the momentum riding in its favor until Jimmer launched a long three and connected with 32 seconds left in the period. ?The crowd went into a frenzy, especially because Jimmer had been struggling from the floor. more.

The Fredette/Peekskill game has particular meaning to me because the team I helped coach, Archbishop Stepinac, was the only team to defeat that Peekskill team that year in front of a raucous crowd at the Westchester County Center. I had heard of Fredette, but assumed that Peekskill, a perennial basketball powerhouse in Westchester, would be too much to handle in the state finals.

The New York Knicks are believed to be moving in on a deal to acquire the 30th overall pick from the Chicago Bulls according to sources. The Knicks have told a number of players projected in the early second round that they would and could acquire an additional pick to take them. The problem is this is exactly what the Knicks said last year and did not end up taking any of the players they pledged to draft nor did they follow through on acquiring additional picks.It is worth noting that Bulls sources have said it is unlikely that they use both of their first round picks, the 28th and 30th overall, so the rumors of the Knicks moving on the 30 lines up with what Chicago is saying.
It just begs the question for me which is: Why would the Bulls do the Knicks any favors?

If the Knicks can score 30 and then land a 2nd round pick, which they've easily done in the past, then this could be a grand slam night for the Knicks if they fit the right pieces. A player like Andrew Goudelock makes total sense, but don't discount Chandler Parsons as well.

Good stuff here from Sam Amick, who was a huge pickup for Sports Illustrated's NBA coverage.

New York (No. 17) has attempted to move up, most likely for BYU sharpshooter Jimmer Fredette or Thompson. But the Knicks continued to scout all their options, holding a private workout with 20-year-old, 7-foot forward Donatas Motiejunas (Italy's Benetton Treviso) on Tuesday. He is in play for their pick, and a source said he played much better in New York than he did in an atrocious workout in Treviso. Motiejunas worked out for the 76ers (No. 16) on Monday and, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer, is expected to work out for Houston (No. 14) and San Antonio (No. 29) as well.
In other news, Biyombo has peaked the interest of the Raptors and it is being reported he may go as high as 5 to Toronto.
Vucevic has garnered the attention of the Rockets at 14 and this may be the wildest draft in terms of rumors and trades in recent memory.

Brooks has worked out twice for both the Knicks and the Bucks. He said he hurt his ankle in his initial workout with New York but was able to overcome the injury through a total of 11 workouts."They're very interested," Brooks said of the Knicks. "I think it's their style of play, sort of similar to what I played at Providence. So they feel like I'd be a good fit. We'll see. The countdown begins."

Brooks was asked about any comparisons of his game to that of Burks and Thompson, who are considered serious candidates to be selected by the Bucks.

I had heard that Brooks didn't work out well for the Knicks and it appears that ankle injury may just by why. I'm not sure he's the right fit in terms of this roster based on the fact that he'll need the ball to be effective. His scoring talents are undeniable.

the Knicks also were impressed with Michigan point guard Darius Morris, who has risen on their draft board. Morris outplayed Kansas guard Josh Selby, who is being viewed by the Knicks staff as too big a risk at 17. Georgia Tech point guard Iman Shumpert and Selby could be available later in the first round, and Walsh is confident he will buy more picks as he has done in the past.
Morris is the best distributor, period.

Some great, er, nuggets, from Alan Hahn (including a note from a current Nugget who wants out.)

On Biyombo

The 6-9 power forward, with a 7-6 wingspan, wanted to work out for the Knicks and he'll be in the New York area for the draft anyway. I'm getting a ton of mixed signals on this player. He's been touted by all the draft experts, but yet one NBA source I talked to said there are fears that he could be another Saer Sene, an athletically-gifted, but extremely raw 7-footer who went 10th overall to the Seattle Sonics in the 2006 draft and is now out of the league.

As we've said, the draft will truly begin when the Jazz decide what they will do with third pick. Should they draft Kemba Walker or Brandon Knight, they won't be in the market for a Point Guard, not even Jimmer Fredette who played for BYU.

I will say this, I have several other PGs ranked higher than Fredette. If they trade up for him I would be against the move, especially if they are moving into the top 11 to get him. But there have been other reports saying Fredette isn't the target and that Biyombo is.

Typical draft chatter.

Chad Ford recently tweeted the prospects who will be enjoying coffee and danish in the NBA's Green room during the draft and, not surprisingly, Klay Thompson and Chris Singleton made the list.

Now this doesn't guarantee that both will be lottery selections as 15 players get invited and who knows maybe one will slip, but it would appear neither will be around when the Knicks draft at 17. In my opinion, this draft is very top heavy. It's hard to imagine a player in this draft leap frogging into the lottery that is on the outside. But, of course, it's happened before.

This is going to be a big week for the franchise, but I agree with Alan Hahn that the late workouts this week may be a tad overblown. The Knicks have seen plenty of the players they love and will draft accordingly.

The guys over at Knicks Vision took a look at the last 10 players selected at 17, and the Pacers are obviously loving the fact that Danny Granger was there in 2005 when Donnie Walsh was selecting. The Sixers are happy that TKB favorite Jrue Holiday (who Walsh loved) fell to them in 2009.

The Knicks took Jerrod Mustaf from Maryland in 1990 who had as strange a life off the court as he did on it.

I will say this. If Bismack Biyombo is on the board at 17 the Knicks have to draft him. Do they move up a few spots, however, at the risk of trading a Douglas or Fields? I say no, unless they get other things back in the deal.

But what's the deal with these Knicks and Biyombo rumors? To be honest, I think it very well could be agent posturing. Biyombo is a lottery talent. He's a relative unknown with an equally unknown agent (Igor Crespo) who has his first NBA lottery ticket in his hands.

Are the Knicks interested in Biyombo? Of course they are. But they are not the only team who could use his services. Every team needs a defensive-minded talent despite his lack of polished offensive skills.

ey are going through the motions on the draft but do not be surprised if both picks belong to someone else before the draft is said and done.Word is the Bulls are looking for veteran players in exchange for their picks, so it's highly likely the Bulls draft players and ultimately trade them to other teams for veterans.

The Bulls are not necessarily looking for cash for their picks, but it seems they would be open to moving one of those picks off in exchange for picks in next year's draft so don't rule that out either.

Obviously, the Knicks don't have a pick in next year's draft but if the Bulls were to sell, it would seem doubtful that they would do the Knicks any favors.

"Donnie Walsh told me that after I worked out for the New York Knicks," Thompson told the Racine Journal Times after working out for the Bucks Wednesday. "I shot the ball pretty well in their workout and, because we have similar builds and similar size, Donnie told me how I really, strongly reminded him of Reggie Miller."

Thompson's workout with the Knicks on June 2 flew under the radar because he was in the same group as BYU's superstar Jimmer Fredette. But Thompson outshot Fredette that day during the 3-point drill, bagging a sensational 21 of 25 3-pointers. Thompson, a native of Orange County, averaged 21.4 points for Washington State.

The Knicks believe Thompson can start as a rookie at shooting guard, which would enable them to move Landry Fields into a sixth-man role. There was an Indy report the Knicks were trying to move up to 15, swapping with Indiana, and giving up Toney Douglas, but a club source said the Knicks feel confident they'll get a good player at 17 even if Thompson doesn't drop.

Is it possible that the Knicks are hiding their interest in Kenneth Faried? A source tells me again that Chris Singleton, Klay Thompson and indeed Faried are atop the list of players they hope to be in their range.

You've heard the rumors of activity of possibly trading up. I'm not a fan of that plan if it's to move up 2 spots to 15 where Indiana sits. They'd have to move either Landry Fields or Toney Douglas and if that were the case they better get back the Pacers 42nd pick and a player from the roster. Either way, I don't make that deal.

I can tell you that the chances of the Knicks adding at least one and maybe two picks in this draft is extremely high.

Great stuff here from Jake Langbecker...5 things the Knicks can take away from the NBA Finals.
Backup Point Guard ? Was there a more fun player to watch this postseason than J.J. Barea? Knicks fans, is there anything more fun than watching Toney Douglas do what Toney Douglas do? Well, yes and no. J.J. Barea was masterful as the backup point guard for Dallas, yes he started games too, but he still played the role of a backup ball handler to Kidd. Toney Douglas can be really exciting to watch, like when he hit 9 three-pointers against Memphis, but also extremely frustrating. If Douglas is to be the backup next season he must improve on his consistency, passing ability, effectiveness in the pick and roll, and ability to get into the paint like Barea. That is a lot to ask of a third year player and maybe he can make those strides. However, I think the answer for the Knicks will be acquiring Ramon Sessions from the Cleveland Cavaliers. Sessions would most likely become available if and when the Cavaliers select Kyrie Irving in next week's draft. Sessions is a more polished backup point guard than Douglas and I believe Douglas could still grow as a player, just in more of an off-guard role, kind of like a Jason Terry. read more.
I like Singleton because you can't have too many players who can defend multiple positions with the athleticism to be able to score on offensive rebounds. That said, you cannot have enough shot making lead guards either. Or size up front. The Knicks have several needs, which is why their direction in the draft is confusing.

And yes, I'm happy to have Melo.

NBA executives are increasingly predicting increased trade activity centered around the draft as the looming lockout puts teams on the clock to face the unusual prospect of needing to do an offseason of work within a short time.?Trades could be explored more,? one front-office veteran said Sunday on the second day of Eurocamp about 20 miles north of Venice, the? largest annual international scouting session in preparation of the draft.? ?Whether that happens or not remains to be?seen. But, yeah, I definitely think the lockout could prompt people to make a lot of moves they might ordinarily wait on.?

The concern for teams in this case isn?t the length of the lockout that in all likelihood will begin July 1. The issue is the amount of?time they will have once the work stoppage, if it happens, is settled. Or won?t have ? if the labor dispute carries deep into the regular season, general? managers will have much less time than usual, perhaps just a couple weeks, between the time the lockout is settled and the start of the renovated schedule. Having more of a preferred roster in place by the end of June, rather than the usual schedule of being able to make adjustments throughout the? summer, will complete a lot of the work now.

Lucas Noguera is the best prospect playing in the event (Motiejunas and Biyombo are only here for workouts). But that really isn't saying much. The level of talent in the camp is pretty under whelming. Noguera was impressive in San Antonio a year ago at the Global Games but seems to have regressed playing in Spain for his 2nd division team. He struggled today showing an inability to catch the ball and go up strong. He did have some nice blocks and shows solid length.

Singleton, who averaged 13.3 points last season for FSU, played on the NCAA's highest-ranked defensive club. ESPN's draft savant Fran Fraschilla called him a "lockdown defender" at the Chicago combine and thinks he could be gone by 17, though some mock drafts have Singleton from 17 to 22.

"They have one of the best threes in league, one of the best fours in league; there's not a better place to learn," said Singleton.

Hofstra's Charles Jenkins is the sleeper of this draft. The 6-3 senior is regarded as one of the country's best mid-major talents, and was the CAA's Player of the Year for two straight seasons, but few were aware of just how dominant of a scorer he really was. On numbers alone, he's more impressive than any other scoring guard who's in contention for the first round, because he offers the rare combination of high efficiency in both ISO and spot-up situations.

Here's how Jenkins' ISO and spot-up numbers compare with other elite combo or shooting guards in the 2011 draft pool: more.

The one thing that has always stood out to me, and I've watched Jenkins a ton, is that his mid-range game is a sound for a guard as any prospect that I've seen in the last decade. People always point to athleticism and getting to the rim, but the pull up game is a lost art that Jenkins has crafted.

Vucevic was especially impressive in an earlier workout for the Charlotte Bobcats, dunking the ball in rapid succession -- using two balls, dunking first with the left hand, then with the right -- 100 consecutive times. Vucevic said he was disappointed with the way he shot the ball in his workout for the Knicks, who are still deciding whether they want to address their glaring need at center through the draft or through free agency.

Vucevic is ranked third among centers and is currently projected to be picked 25th overall by ESPN draft guru Chad Ford, whose Mock Draft 4.0 will be published on Wednesday. ("He is rising," Ford told me in a text message.) Vucevic is also slated to hold workouts for the 76ers and Nets, continuing a whirlwind tour in which scouts are trying to establish exactly what differentiates Vucevic from Turkish center Enes Kanter, who is projected as a top-5 pick. (One difference is their vertical leaps, with Kanter's at 28 inches and Vucevic's at 25 inches).

I highlighted Vucevic for hoopsworld when covering the NCAA Tournament. He's tremendously polished offensively and has good size to be able to take up space down low. He's better than Timofey Mozgov. I think the Knicks are seriously considering targeting him at the end of the first round if they can somehow score another draft pick.

Tommy Dee- Chris Singleton

I know I'm bouncing back and forth a bit, but I'm, for now, sticking to my initial thought. Singleton may or may not be there at 17 but if he is, he's too good for the Knicks to pass on. He's a rotation player immediately, and I believe he can, at 6'9 230, play on the floor with Melo and Amar'e. The Knicks will still need to address size up front and I expect them to later in the draft. If Klay Thompson and Singleton are on the board at the same time I'm not sure who I'd take. I'd lean towards Thompson.

I've received a ton of inquiries about workouts in terms of who's looked good and who has not and the best thing that I can gather is that Klay Thompson was incredibly impressive. What that means is he'll probably be gone by 17. There really isn't much to talk about in terms of reporting from the actual workouts because the media isn't allowed in, which should come as zero shock to you.

Tommy Beer from hoopsworld has some great thoughts on some prospects. Check them out here.

And as far as the front office stuff goes, a pretty solid source for me has Allan Houston right smack a top the list. As Alan Hahn reported today, it will not be Isiah Thomas, which begs the question for me, when exactly did Zeke reconnect with the owner as far as an exact date. Many people will say "he never left" which is funny because does anyone believe that he had a hand in drafting Gallinari or Jordan Hill? Did Donnie need his permission in shipping out Jamal Crawford and Zach Randolph or signing Chris Duhon? What about Nate one of Isiah's favorites. Wouldn't he have had autonomy to tell Dolan that he should get an extension?

Brooks impressed the heck out of Len Elmore at the combine. He's a fan of his length and athleticism. He can score and is a gifted player who can get into seams and make shots.

But from all accounts and people that I've talked to says be aware of the fact that Brooks does not use his athleticism on the defensive end. He's offensively ready to contribute right away, but what if he's not the go to guy? What if he has to learn how to play off of Melo and Stoudemire? Is he equipped? Good question.

My feeling is that he isn't the fit at 17 based on his lack of attention to detail defensively, and the fact that I'm not sold he can be effective in a rotation where he's not the go-to guy. That said, there's no reason that he can't work his way in and come in and help at the 2 guard, which is a need. He's an incredibly skilled offensive player, I am just assuming that there will be better fits at 17 come draft night.

Sure, Mike D?Antoni?s system needs as many marksmen as possible to work, but there?s a lot to like here from a talent perspective, and shooting form, accuracy, and therefore efficiency can be coached. After all, offense is Mr. Mustache?s forte, is it not?

The Knicks can grab whatever non-elite big man falls to them at #17 in the first round, or they can hope that a flawed player like Jimmer Fredette isn?t snatched up by the Utah Jazz ? he will be ? but it just seems to me that a defensive player with unparalleled physical gifts at his position is just the sort of blank canvas that New York needs during this critical off-season.

Haven't seen much of Shumpert other than his performances against the Terps and Tar Heels. Very athletic at his size who, as Jamie points out, could be seen as a player that the Knicks can groom at the 1. They loved Tyreke Evans in that oversized PG mold two years ago.

The 6-foot-3 guard from the College of Charleston outperformed all of his peers in the combine's shooting drills by knocking down all 21 of his timed midrange attempts and hitting more spot-up threes from NBA range than well-known shooters like Jimmer Fredette and Jon Diebler. He also recorded a 37-inch maximum vertical and the second fastest lane agility time of the 54 prospects invited.

Goudelock's impressive display led to plenty of workout requests and now he has a packed schedule.

"I've already worked out for the Detroit Pistons and Oklahoma City Thunder," Goudelock told HOOPSWORLD in a phone interview. "I've scheduled workouts with the Los Angeles Lakers, Milwaukee Bucks, Miami Heat, Charlotte Bobcats, Atlanta Hawks, Boston Celtics, Orlando Magic, New Jersey Nets and some others."
