Report: Knicks Scout May Have Led Workouts in Violation of NBA Rules

Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Knicks director of East Coast scouting Rodney Heard may have circumvented league rules by "conducting secret workouts of collegiate players throughout gymnasiums in suburban Atlanta" over the past four years. Wojnarowski writes that, according to three players involved in some of the workouts, Heard "coordinated and conducted the sessions," including one, apparently held in violation of league rules, at which Brandon Rush tore his ACL, forcing him to withdraw from the 2007 draft. (League bylaws forbade teams from working out players prior to the league's pre-draft camp.) Wojnarowski also writes that, according to league sources with knowledge of the workouts, Heard trained Wilson Chandler for multiple weeks before the Knicks drafted him with the 23rd pick in 2007. Heard denied involvement in any of the workouts described by Wojnarowski. The league, through a spokesperson, declined to comment. [Yahoo Sports]
