Tony Mitchell will work out for the New York Knicks on Friday.
Mitchell, a 6-foot-8 power forward, averaged 13 points and 8 rebounds this past season for North Texas.
“Best athlete in the draft,’’ one Eastern Conference executive said. “But he’s below average to average skill-wise and his team didn’t win this year.’’
Mitchell will be joined at the workout by Ricardo Ledo, Tahj Tate, Adonis Thomas, Christian Watford and Grant Jerrett.
