Dennis Smith Jr. is holding a private workout on Thursday with several teams attending including the Knicks.
Smith Jr. was in NY early this month for a scheduled workout with the Knicks but only had a meeting with Knicks brass. Now several teams will attend the workout with the Sixers rumored to being very interested in possibly trading down in order to grab another asset and acquire the young PG to pair with their point-forward Ben Simmons. Even Boston is getting involved as they are rumored to be requesting a meeting / workout with Smith Jr. prior to next week’s draft. Things are heating up for the talented guard out of NC State and it will interesting to see where he ends up next Thursday. Philly would be the best landing spot for him for fantasy production with the Knicks an intriguing option as well if they hand him the starting job from the jump.
