Phil Jackson and Kurt Rambis attended draft prospect workouts in Los Angeles

There has to be some way for Rambis to earn his salary.

The New York Knicks’ front office, not content to scour the East Coast for prospect workouts, headed out to L.A. to catch a glimpse of a few intriguing players. Phil Jackson and his consigliere triangolo, Kurt Rambis, were in the building to watch workouts for prospects repped by CAA. The Jackson regime and CAA, together at last? Thank God Andrea Bargnani is safely back in Europe.

Later, Jackson and Rambis viewed some Catalyst Sports clients with a host of other NBA front office bigwigs.

Here we have De’Aaron Fox (screw you, lottery gods!) hitting some jumpers.

Louisville combo guard Donovan Mitchell, who seems to be flying up draft boards, also got in some work.

Duke sharpshooter Luke Kennard—a personal favorite of P&T’s own Jonathan Schulman—put on a clinic from beyond the arc.

Kennard’s former Duke teammate Amile Jefferson was there as well. Jefferson worked out with the Knicks last week.

One can assume Jackson and Rambis represented the Knicks in L.A. due to their strong connections to the city. I would prefer it, though, if Rambis did not have a huge say in whom the organization picks on draft night.
