Former Oklahoma Sooners point guard Trae Young is scheduled to sit down with the New York Knicks on Friday for a formal interview at the NBA combine in Chicago

According to the New York Daily NewsStefan Bondy, Young’s family “has made no secret that New York is a desirable destination” for the 19-year-old despite the intense scrutiny the Big Apple invites. 

“That’s what Trae lives for. He lives for that type of stuff. Just think about it: He’s probably the most talked about, most publicized kid in this draft and he’s been through it all,” Trae’s father, Ray, told Bondy. “Trae’s been scrutinized to the point that he has thick skin. None of that stuff is going to bother him.”
