Frank Ntilikina, Emmanuel Mudiay, Trey Burke, Troy Williams, Damyean Dotson and Isaiah Hicks all participated in a group workout in front of new Knicks coach David Fizdale earlier this week, per a league source. Also in the gym that day? Michael Beasley, who will be a free agent this summer. Beasley, per a source, was just working out at the facility and didn’t participate in the group workout. It’s not unusual for players in New York to work out at the team facility but it’s noteworthy in this case because the Knicks have a new coach. The NY Post reported earlier this week that the younger players would be working out in a group setting for Fizdale.

According to an NBA source, Fizdale will conduct his first informal workout with players Monday as the Knicks three young point guards — Ntilikina, Emmanuel Mudiay and Trey Burke — will be on hand. Also on hand will be Damyean Dotson, their 2017 second-round pick, and Troy Williams, who played for Fizdale in Memphis.
Troy Williams, the Knicks swingman, played for him in Memphis and gushed over his hire. He remembers a coach who made him feel at ease with the team. Williams holds Fizdale in high esteem for his motivational tricks. He pointed to the Fizdale’s fluency in playing mind games, noting the coach riled him up last season during a game against Golden State. Fizdale accused Williams of playing scared and not hard enough, finding the right buttons to push, Williams said, to tweak him into a state of utilitarian anger on the court. “He’s a laid-back person himself but he brings out the best in a person,” Williams told The Athletic. “He puts people in the best positions.”
