Would Malik Monk fit in with the New York Knicks?

Would Malik Monk fit in with the New York Knicks?

Malik Monk was the star Thursday on what was a busy day of group workouts in the morning followed by a private session with the Kentucky product in the afternoon.

The University of Kentucky freshman showed poise, confidence and a sense of humor when he met with reporters at the 76ers practice facility.

Perhaps the Sixers would prefer to add Malik Monk or Dennis Smith Jr. during the draft.

Heading into next week's NBA Draft in Brooklyn, New York, Coach Cal doesn't think that aspect of Monk's game will change at the next level.

"I think I can go one, two, three", Monk said.

The 6-foot-3, 200-pound Monk averaged 19.8 points for Kentucky last season. He shot 45 percent overall from the field and 39.7 percent from 3-point range. At the end of the video above, Monk also runs an Iverson cut that the Sixers use in their offense.

Ms Cannata was visiting London Bridge as part of a long-planned holiday to the United Kingdom with her husband, Gaetano, 63. As the Duchess wandered the halls and met with the hospital's team leaders, she told staffers, "What you do is remarkable".

But shooting is what he's known for. There has been a lot of discussion about the third overall pick, but not much has been said about what the Sixers should do with their four picks from the second round.

There has been plenty of talk of late about the possibility of the Sixers trading back - potentially with the Sacramento Kings in exchange for picks No. 5 and 10 - and Monk joked Thursday that he'll be satisfied wherever he winds up being chosen next week.

"That's all they were doing and focusing on", Monk said. "I think it's great for me". Monk was inconsistent with his deep shooting during the team portion, but he did start getting his shots to fall as the workout progressed. Simmons watched Monk's workout with Joel Embiid and Robert Covington.

Monk worked out for the Knicks earlier this week, and the triangle offense was emphasized. He handled the ball in pick "n" roll situations and penetrated the lane for floaters.

"We also wanted to see how creative he is with the dribble", Williams said. "We wanted to see him challenged by shot blockers". This may be the first time that a shooter has done so much defense in a workout, but [it's] really important to see a whole slate of skills.

"People always are going to say what they want", Monk said (more on that here).

"You look at Malik and I think the interest in Malik is because he can play both 1 and 2 and he can score the ball", Calipari said.

"I think I did a pretty good job", Monk said. Not that many people have seen my passing abilities.

As for Monk, he said his workous in both Philadelphia and NY went well.

Monk scorched North Carolina for a Kentucky freshman-record 47 points in a December 17 victory, making 8 of 12 3s in the process. Some elite draft prospects elect not to work out for teams.

"Coach told us about Philly, how hard and tough a place it is to play", Brooks said. If the Sixers need players that badly, then they should turn to free agency to get them. You just post a player and you just move off of him. "We want to make sure we make the right decision".
