ESPN's Marc Stein reports that the Clippers take the threat of a Spurs free-agent pursuit of Chris Paul very seriously despite San Antonio's current lack of cap space. That could impact the Knicks: if Paul signs with SAS, it would likely diminish the Clippers' interest in pursuing a Carmelo Anthony trade.

Knicks president Phil Jackson and GM Steve Mills were among dozens of NBA executives on hand to watch Kentucky guard Malik Monk play today at his agency's pro workout day in New York, per sources. Members of the Knicks organization have been enamored with Monk but it would surprise Draft observers if Monk is available when the Knicks pick at 8. The Knicks are likely considering several options with the No. 8 pick. Included among those options are Monk, French guard Frank Ntilikina, Kentucky's De'Aaron Fox and N.C. State's Dennis Smith Jr., per sources. An earlier post incorrectly stated that he was not there. We regret the error. Many of Excel's draft prospects, including Harry Giles, worked out in front of execs.
