GREENBURGH, N.Y. — One thing Jeremy Hazell can do is shoot.
Hazell said he’s working on getting stronger and on improving his defense. “Everybody know I can score with anybody,” he said. “I’ve just got to show I can lock down and put like 15 more pounds on and I’ll be alright.” If Hazell isn’t drafted, he said he would be willing to spend a year in Europe — something he may have to do anyway if there’s an NBA lockout. “That would be my next option if I don’t get picked,” he said. “I would definitely go overseas, that would definitely be my next option. So I would have no problem going over the waters.” Parsons, the reigning SEC Player of the Year, is projected as an early second-round pick. He has already had 12 workouts and said it’s been “a grind.” “I think for being 6-9, 6-10, I’m very versatile for my position,” said Parsons, who averaged 11.3 points and 7.8 rebounds last season. “I’m a small forward that can play multiple positions and guard multiple positions and just use my high basketball IQ and my passing and my shooting ability to make people better.” Parsons said he’s picked the brain of former Florida and Knicks standout David Lee, and believes he could help the Knicks. “[Mike D’Antoni] is a great coach and this is a great organization,” he said. “I think I can help them a lot with his style of play and his coaching, I feel like I’d fit in great.”
