Sources repeatedly have told The Post that Shea and former Knicks scout Scott McGuire tried to steer Tapscott away from Weis. Shea admits he was against drafting Ron Artest because of hometown distractions, but won’t confirm his feelings on drafting Weis. “I’m always going to be associated with Frederic and I’m never going to say publicly what happened,’’ Shea said. “We made a team decision. We were seven people and we all voted and I’m not telling who voted for whom. Scott had an opinion. Kenny Williamson, may he rest in peace, had an opinion. Ed had an opinion and you’re not going to get that from me. What happened later to him in summer league had much more an effect on Frederic than who decided to draft him.’’
