Zeke Nnaji has scheduled a virtual interview with the New York Knicks this week, according to SKOR North’s Darren Wolfson.
The Minnesota native has been named to the first team’s All-Pac-12 team this season.
The Ringer put Nnaji in 42nd place, calling him a “fluid athlete who has all the tools to be a great two-way, although his defense must develop.”
The Knicks have Mitchell Robinson as their young front row award, but they will likely let Bobby Portis and Taj Gibson walk during the offseason. This leaves Julius Randle like the other big man on the roster.
New York currently holds two choices for the first round in the 2020 draw, along with the 38th choice, based on the current rankings, in the second round from the trade that sent Willy Hernangomez to Charlotte.
While the Knicks have been busy building their scouting staff this week with the additions of jazz executive Walt Perrin and former GM network assistant Frank Zanin, it’s unclear if either of them will officially join the organization in time. for the virtual meeting with Nnaji. Obviously, Perrin, who will be the head of college scouting for the Knicks, will quickly be included in the preparation of the drafts.
