The Jazz, in a trade with Phoenix, have the Knicks' first-round pick - at No. 16 - and could have a crack at Lincoln's Sebastian Telfair. How ironic would that be, as Stephon Marbury would then have been indirectly traded for his cousin.

Other notables who worked out at the Knicks' Westchester practice facility last week were Miami's Darius Rice, Xavier's Lionel Chalmers and Florida State's Tim Pickett.

One notable absentee from last week's three workout sessions was Knick coach Lenny Wilkens, whom Knick brass believe is hiding out at his Seattle home. Isiah was joined by his scouting staff, including assistant GM Jeff Nix, Willis Reed, Scott and Dick McGuire and assistant coaches Herb Williams and Mike Malone.

Isiah has worked out a total of 12 players that also included Andre Brown (DePaul), Desmon Farmer (USC), Bernard Robinson, Jr. (Michigan), Jamar Smith (Maryland), Jackson Vroman (Iowa State), Mike Williams (Western Michigan), Nate Williams (Georgia State) Terrence Woods (Florida A&M).
