The Knicks continue to bring in top prospects ahead of the NBA Draft, with Duke C Wendell Carter Jr. is expected to visit and workout for New York this week, per ESPN's Ian Begley.
Along with Marvin Bagley III, Carter was a standout in his freshman season at Duke last year. He averaged 13.5 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 2.1 blocks per game.
Begley reports the Knicks are high on Carter, however, it isn't likely that he will make it down to their No. 9 pick.
This draft will be the first under the Scott Perry-Steve Mills era as former team president Phil Jackson decided to take PG Frank Ntilikina before he was relieved of his duties. Perry and Mills have stressed the importance of building around the Knicks' young talent, which is why they are doing their due diligence in working out top prospects to see who would be the right fit for their system.
If the Knicks are looking to add a rim protector, though, Carter could certainly be that guy if he falls further than expected.
