Earlier this month it was clear that Miami's Lonnie Walker had support among decision-makers in the Knicks' front office. That remains the case today, a few days from the draft, per sources. The Knicks worked Walker out individually earlier this week. Opposing executives believe Walker and Kentucky's Kevin Knox are among the players in the conversation for the Knicks, who pick ninth in the draft. Members of the organization were impressed by Knox's workout and some were also impressed by Walker's athleticism, defensive versatility and shot-making. Walker and Knox are probably among a bigger group of players being considered for the ninth pick. The Knicks also have workouts scheduled for next week that could impact their approach on Thursday.
