The Suns turn the draft intrigue a different direction today by bringing in the top four collegiate point guard prospects for a workout at US Airways Center. The Suns’ workout will feature the point guard quartet of Michigan’s Trey Burke, Lehigh’s C.J. McCollum (a combo guard), Syracuse’s Michael Carter-Williams and Miami’s Shane Larkin. Suns general manager Ryan McDonough is taking a best-player-available approach to the draft and a 25-win team needs that, even if their best performer (Goran Dragic) and last year’s lottery pick (Kendall Marshall) are already point guards on the roster.

If Larkin had not chosen to pursue a career as an NBA player, he would have followed one as an architect. He enjoyed math growing up and was drawn to the intricacies of architecture after taking drafting class in high school. "It was something that interests me," he told CSNNE.com. "I like math, and architecture is all angles, drawing the right lines, points, having right axis when you rotate, all that stuff. I know you can make a good living off of it, so if basketball didn't work out it would have given me something to fall back on and still be successful in life." CSNNE.com

Former Miami point guard Shane Larkin won’t work out for the Knicks, his agent told SNY.tv. “Currently, Shane’s not scheduled to work out for the Knicks,” agent Steve McCaskill told SNY.tv. “And we don’t have any intentions of scheduling one. We don’t feel like he’s going to be on the board when they select.” The Knicks have the No. 24 pick in the June 27 NBA Draft and could be in the market for a young point guard to back up Raymond Felton and Jason Kidd, especially if Pablo Prigioni doesn’t return to the team.
