With just two days until the Knicks are on the clock at No. 3 overall, one would think New York is set with their plan come Thursday night.
That is until a "last-minute workout" was scheduled for Wednesday with Vanderbilt PG Darius Garland, per ESPN's Jonathan Givony.
Garland is a top-10 prospect that some can see going in the top five. Givony adds that the Knicks are in "serious consideration" of picking Garland at No. 3.
If you haven't heard of Garland, it is probably because he played in just five games last season. A torn meniscus required surgery after playing just five games. In those contests, though, Garland was a leader for the Commodores, averaging 16.2 points, 2.6 assists and 3.8 rebounds while shooting 53.7 percent from the field. He was also 11-for-23 (47.8 percent) from beyond the arc.
Garland's explosive style of play, crafty handles, and smooth jumper has seen comparisons to that of Damian Lillard. And like Kyrie Irving during his time at Duke, Garland played in limited games, yet has many teams thinking about potentially trading up to nab him at No. 4 if the Pelicans want to move the pick.
Givony says the Timberwolves, Celtics, and Bulls are all teams considering a potential trade to draft Garland.
Could Garland beat out RJ Barrett for the No. 3 pick, though? This late workout with the Knicks could certainly raise his name up their draft board.
