So many workouts.

Happy Sunday, friends! The New York Knicks had themselves a busy weekend, working out a whole bunch of draft prospects on Saturday.

Two of those players — Miles Bridges and Bruce Brown — have their very own P&T “Know the Prospect” articles, so check ‘em out if haven’t already. Bridges, Kevin Knox and Zhaire Smith could come into play for the Knicks’ No. 9 overall pick, while Brown, Shake Milton and Hamadou Diallo could be around when New York picks again at No. 36. It’s also wonderful just to see the team announcing these workouts, rather than try to sneak them in on the down-low.

And the Knicks aren’t staying put, either. According to Marc Berman, some front office folks are headed to Chicago to work out the ultra-mysterious Michael Porter Jr. Hopefully the Knicks will pry Porter’s medical records from the Chicago Bulls, who are the only team currently holding them.

His medicals are deemed crucial in determining his stock, but he didn’t submit to any of those tests at the NBA Draft Combine in mid-May.

In an peculiar scenario, the Bulls’ medical staff reportedly is in possession of Porter’s medical records and is sharing them with certain clubs. Chicago selects seventh.

Peculiar, indeed.

As for players the Knicks have already drafted, Kristaps Porzingis released episode 2 of his YouTube series, “Porzingis’ Comeback.” Come for the workout footage, stay for the shots of Martins Porzingis’s adorable dog.

Let’s end with a clip of Porzingis encouraging Frank Ntilikina’s workouts via Instagram, which is sure to warm your heart.
