While the New York Knicks prepare for the 2020 NBA Draft amid the coronavirus pandemic, they are conducting player interviews on Zoom calls. Reportedly, Adam Player, one of the players they met via the video conferencing service, is Louisville forward Jordan Nwora.
Nwora, who met around 20 NBA teams, decided to return to college for his final year, hoping he could help his prospect plans in 2020. He took advantage of the opportunity to shine in the ACC, averaging 18 , 0 points, 7.7 rebounds and 1.3 assists, while earning All-ACC honors from the first team.
He was also named a third-team All-American for his 2019-20 performance.
New York is reportedly interested in adding an attacker who can shoot his role in this offseason and Nwora adapts to the bill. He fired 40.2% from the center of this season while attempting a high volume of shots (6.1 per game). According to The Stepien, it’s not a good “moving shooter” and “rather boxed as a catch & shoot”. However, the 6-foot-7 forward can clearly space the floor.
