GREENSBORO, NC - MARCH 10: Mustapha Farrakhan #2 of the Virginia Cavaliers controls the ball against Malcolm Grant #3 and Durand Scott of the Miami Hurricanes during the second half of the first round of the 2011 ACC men's basketball tournament at the Greensboro Coliseum on March 10, 2011 in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Today's workout doesn't include any big names, but it does have some of the coolest. Here's the lineup, via Lord Thomas of the House of Dee:
Mustapha Farrakhan, G, 6-4, 181, Virginia, senior
Vlad Moldoveanu, F, 6-9, 215, American, senior
Jared Mintz, F, 6-9, 243, Lafayette, senior
Corey Stokes, G, 6-5, 220, Villanova, senior
Mustapha Farakhan, besides having perhaps the ballerest first name on the planet, is the grandson of Louis Farrakhan. You certainly don't see that every day. The closest the Knicks have gotten to a descendant of a religious leader is Lavor Postell, who was Chuck E. Cheese's nephew. Meanwhile, Vlad Moldoveanu is Romanian, which should be easy to remember because he shares a name with the tallest mountain in Romania. Jared Mintz and I have a mutual friend on Facebook. Corey Stokes is from Bayonne, which means I'd probably refer to him as "Louie Lastik".
And that's who's working out today. There's not a projected draft pick among 'em, but they seem like decent Bayhawk candidates.
