Some agents were unhappy with the Rich Paul-inspired Pro Day that was televised Thursday night on ESPN2, sources told Marc Berman of the New York Post.
The event featured workouts with two Paul clients in Tyrese Maxey and Anthony Edwards, which agents thought was “unwarranted exposure” for Paul’s clients.
“I was able to show I can knock down my outside shot consistently – catch-and-shoot, off the move – and I was able to show my conditioning because nobody has seen me because of COVID-19,” said Maxey of his Pro Day.
The Knicks were watching the Pro Day, sources told Berman.
“If anyone passes on him in a certain range, it’s going to be like the Jamal thing, the Tyler (Herro) thing,” said John Calipari of Maxey.
NBA insiders reportedly fear that the Knicks could be a pipeline team for Kentucky players.
