“Yeah, I’ve been talking to the Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks. They’ve wanted to have me in for a workout,” Alkins said. “Nothing is scheduled right now, but I think that being a New York kid that would be cool to be home. Both of those teams are rebuilding so I’m excited.”
Alkins impressed at this year’s NBA Combine, compared to last, with his body fat measurement dropping from 11 percent to 8.9 percent, his height growing an inch from 6–3.75′ to 6–4.75, and he lost five pounds (223 to 217). He also looked good in the 5-on-5 scrimmage.
