GREENBURGH, N.Y. —Jonny Flynn grew up in Niagara Falls, N.Y. dreaming of playing for the Knicks.Come the June 25 NBA Draft, Flynn may get his wish.
The Knicks hold the No. 8 pick and are in the market for a true point guard.
“That would mean a lot,” the 6-foot Flynn said Tuesday after working out at the Knicks’ practice facility. “Growing up a die-hard Knicks fan, everybody around me was a Knicks fan. My father was a Knicks fan. Just dating back to the Miami-New York series [in 1998] where you got people swinging from people’s legs and things like that, it would just mean a lot for me to stay home and play for the New York Knicks.”
