The New York Knicks are reportedly in regular contact with people around Devin Vassell and are collecting “a ton” on the Florida State sophomore, according to teams monitoring Vassell’s situation.
Vassell averaged 12.7 points and 5.1 rebounds last season.
He is currently ranked No. 11 in ESPN’s Best Available, with the Knicks having the eighth pick in the upcoming draft.
In regards to a video posted recently showing Vassell’s shooting form, Florida State assistant CY Young said that the player has not altered his shot.
“Because he’s shooting from so far back, he’s sling-shotting it from over his head. Because it’s way deep. It was a (mess around) half-court shot. He always had kind of a high release but he hasn’t changed his shot. He doesn’t bring it back that far. He has not changed his shot at all,” said Young.
Vassell shot over 41% from 3 in his college career.
