Isaiah Briscoe’s pre-draft workout tour continued today with a stop in Tarrytown, New York for a workout with the Knicks on Tuesday.
A native of nearby Newark, New Jersey, Briscoe considers Knicks superstar Carmelo Anthony to be one of his friends and basketball mentors. Briscoe occasionally works out in Anthony’s Terminal 23 gym, and Anthony once told Adam Zagoria he absolutely sees Briscoe playing in the NBA one day.
As for Briscoe’s prospects with the Knicks, New York is in need of point guard depth and holds two second-round picks at No. 44 and No. 58 in the draft. Briscoe is currently projected to go undrafted, but maybe Anthony can put in a word and get his franchise to take a gamble on the former Wildcat.
