Knicks to host pre-draft workout

The Knicks will host their first pre-draft workout on Wednesday at the MSG Training Facility in Westchester.

New York has the 24th pick in the first round and is expected to draft a back up guard or a big man.

The group of prospects they will workout on Wednesday reflects that theory.

Here is the list of those who will workout on Wednesday with a short profile, courtesy of ESPN.com's draft coverage:

Isaiah Canaan, G: A 6-0 senior from Murray State, Canaan is a solid shooter with a good wingspan and a strong frame.

Brandon Triche, G: A 6-4 senior from Syracuse, Triche is a high IQ player who sees the floor well and can knock down shots.

Deshaun Thomas, F: The 6-7 forward is a strong, athletic scorer with good size for his position.

Murphy Holloway, F: The 6-6 power forward is Ole Miss' all-time leading rebounder and actually signed with the Baltimore Ravens to try his luck as a tight end.

A.J. Matthews, F/C: The 7-1 center played high school basketball Van Arsdale in Queens and played college hoops at Farmingdale State. His height and athleticism has caught the eye of many around the league.

Norvel Pelle, F: The 6-10 big man is an explosive leaper and runs the floor well but lacks a polished offensive game.
