Fox will be at the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago next week, while Ntilikina, Monk and Smith will not. Knicks executives figure to be at the Combine as they continue to attempt to improve their team amid speculation that they might deal Carmelo Anthony this summer and the latest report that they fielded calls for Porziginis after he skipped his exit meeting with President Phil Jackson. “I got to see [Ntilikina] in Michael Jordan’s gym last summer because he was here in New York, but Frank is a tremendous prospect,” Fraschilla said. “He’s not as polished as [projected No. 1 pick Markelle] Fultz or [Lonzo] Ball right now but playing at a high level in France and playing his best right now. And he’s playing in a league that has put out a lot of NBA players, the French Pro A league has guys all over the NBA, Rudy Gobert, [Boris] Diaw, [Tony] Parker], [Kevin] Seraphin] and others.
