New York Teams

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

The Knicks plan to acquire a pick in June's draft. The best-case scenario would probably be a late first-round pick but second-round is more likely. The club has shown interest in several players in recent weeks, including Indiana guard Yogi Ferrell, who has a workout scheduled with the club next month. New York also interviewed Kansas guard Wayne Selden at the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago and has expressed interest in him as the draft approaches, according to league sources. Selden, a 6-6 guard, would fit the mold of the big guards Phil Jackson used in his Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Laker teams. Ferrell, a 6-0 guard, has impressed in workouts, according to sources, and was the only point guard last season to average 17 PPG, 5.5 assists and shoot at least 40% from 3. The Knicks have also expressed interest in St. Bonaventure guard Marcus Posley and will likely be one of many teams at the agency-hosted workouts for Seton Hall's Isaiah Whitehead and Syracuse's Malachi Richardson. They also attended the agency-hosted workout for Kansas' Cheik Diallo, according to SNY.tv.

A-Rod returns, Yankees fall to Blue Jays (1:23)

Jim Bowden ESPN Senior Writer 

Julio Urias, 19, will make his major league debut with the Dodgers on Friday in New York VS Mets. He did not allow a run in his last 26 inning in the hitter friendly PCL....the Dodgers AAA affiliate. He was promoted to LA with an overall 1.10 ERA. He has a mid-nineties fastball., a Wipe out knee buckling curve ball and fading deceptive change up. He has the ability to change eye levels, add and subtract velo on all his pitches and keep the ball out of the middle of the plate. He has the poise and composure of a 10-year veteran and was considered the best left-handed pitching prospect in minor league baseball. The only question left is how the teenager will handle the pressure of making his major league debut in New York City against the defending NL Champs New York Mets in a close to sold out CitiField and millions of people watching on TV. Most scouting reports say he can handle the pressure......We'll soon find out.
