The Knicks brought in Latvian big man Kristaps Porzingis for a private workout on Monday, league sources said.

Monday’s workout was the second time the Knicks viewed the 7-1 sharpshooter in person; Phil Jackson and Derek Fisher also traveled to Las Vegas to watch Porzingis’ workout earlier this month.

The fact that New York brought him in for another workout is evidence the Knicks are considering the possibility of selecting him with the fourth overall pick on Thursday night if he's still on the board. The Daily News first reported Porzingis’ private workout.

New York is also scheduled to work out Myles Turner, who told reporters in Detroit that he’d be working out for the Knicks on Tuesday.
