And now we know how Isiah Thomas found those "steals" in the mid/late 1st round.For the past four years, the New York Knicks may have circumvented NBA draft rules by conducting secret workouts of collegiate players throughout gymnasiums in suburban Atlanta, Yahoo! Sports has found.
Knicks director of East Coast scouting Rodney Heard coordinated and conducted the sessions, three players who were involved in some of the workouts told Yahoo! Sports – including one May 2007 session that resulted in a devastating knee injury to Kansas All-American Brandon Rush(notes). A tear of the anterior cruciate ligament in Rush’s right knee forced him to withdraw from the 2007 draft and required surgery plus six months of rehabilitation.

I bet they get off with no punishment either.
STARTING AT FOOOORWARD...6'8"..Tyr......wait...Dom..who the fuck?
what is the difference between an improper workout and a proper one? What is wrong with a team working out a player if he wants to be drafted to that team?
The workout, which also involved other college players who had declared for the draft but had not signed with an agent, circumvented NBA rules, Yahoo! Sports reported, because it was held before the annual pre-draft camp.
NCAA rules permitted Rush to attend workouts with NBA teams — up until the draft’s early withdrawal date — as long as he had not signed with an agent.
Because he had not inked with an agent, Rush was allowed to return to KU for his junior year as he battled back from ACL surgery.
“Brandon initially told us he hurt his knee in Kansas City,” KU coach Bill Self said in Adrian Wojnarowski’s Yahoo! Sports story. “And later, he told us that was inaccurate and that it happened the day prior, while he was in North Carolina (where he played in prep school). We heard about the workouts in Atlanta, and we asked Brandon if he had worked out there and he said, ‘No,’ that he was injured when he got there.”
