“Fraschilla said he believes Knicks general manager Glen Grunwald should take a flier on a project such as Providence’s Ricky Ledo, whom he predicts will be by far the most talented player available at No. 24.
Ledo said this week his best pre-draft workout was with the Knicks.
Ledo had major issues as a college freshman, wasn’t allowed to play because of academic reasons and is known as a flake with bad body language.
“He’ll be the most skilled player left,’’ Fraschilla told The Post yesterday. “Sure, there’s a lot of questions. You don’t know what he’ll be able to bring next year because he didn’t play last season. But for the franchise down the road, it’s a better pick. What you get from the 24th guy in this draft you may be able to get from free agency with the veteran’s minimum for next season.’’
Tommy DeeI’ve been staying up late night studying tape on everyone and I’m leaning towards taking Ledo at 24. The only drawback is that he had 10% body fat heading into the combine but talent wise he’s off the charts and I was told he absolutely crushed his workout with the Knicks. Will he be there is the question. Boston and Cleveland, I’m told, are lurking.
