    Following his appearance last month at the NBA Draft Combine, Knicks President Phil Jackson is out making the rounds ahead of the draft.

    The Zenmaster was among the NBA executives at the Octagon Pro Day on Thursday in Los Angeles that featured Kentucky’s Bam Adebayo, Oregon’s Tyler Dorsey, Iowa State’s Monte Morris and Indiana’s OG Anunoby.

    The Knicks previously worked out the 6-foot-10 Adebayo, who averaged 13.0 points and 8.0 rebounds in his lone season at Kentucky.

    The Knicks are expected to take a guard with the No. 8 pick, and N.C. State’s Dennis Smith Jr. and France’s Frank Ntilikina are two potential targets at that spot. Smith Jr. is expected to work out for the Knicks, but no date has yet been set, sources said.

    The Knicks also pick at Nos. 44 and 58, with DraftExpress.com currently projected Villanova’s Josh Hart and Arizona’s Kobi Simmons in those spots.
