News and Notes: Tuesday "Knick Day" Edition

Below, some news and notes for Tuesday...
  • Numerous sources are reporting that Cornell's Ryan Wittman and Jeff Foote will workout for the Knicks today. For Foote it is his second visit to the Knicks, while Wittman was scouted by the Knicks last week at the Nets' open workout in New Jersey. PostingandToasting.com comments:
    "Oh, and I think Ryan Wittman is Randy Wittman's son. As far as I know, neither are related to Walt Whitman. The big story here (relatively speaking) is that this will be Foote's second visit. The call-back could mean nothing at all, but Foote is the first prospect to return for another look. Considering that he's not mentioned at all in most mock drafts, it would be surprising if New York had genuine interest in the Cornell big man at the 38th or 39th pick. Maybe they just like him as a legitimate 7-footer against whom they can pit other prospects? Maybe he left something behind the first time he visited?"

Witt was once called Walt during his days as a freshman. The moniker was given to him by strength and conditioning guru Tom Howley. Witt was also called Bobcat during his days high above Cayuga's waters. Not sure what that was in reference to.

You missed that the Blazers are going to work out Foote. And Jeremy Lin worked out for the Grizz.
