Steve Mills said they will conduct one session with six players at once, while the rest — including Young’s workout — will be 1-on-0. While most agents prefer their clients to avoid matching up with other players, Mills said the individual workouts can expose poor fitness.
Kristaps Porzingis famously struggled with that during his individual workout with the Knicks in 2015.
“I personally think it’s tougher for a guy who goes 1-on-0 because if there are any fatigue factors and things like that, there are no breaks for them,” Mills said. “You have to manufacture breaks, so I actually think for the guys if you’re not in really, really great shape, you can look not as good in a 1-on-0 as if you were in a 2-on-2 or a 3-on-3. But I understand why agents don’t want their guys to go up against each other. That’s just the way the process is structured now. But from a player’s perspective, it can get tough in a 1-on-0.”
