The Knicks were among the teams who did their due diligence on Mitchell Robinson. General manager Scott Perry had watched him play on the high school all-star game circuit in 2017 — the last time Robinson played in an organized game. Perry also had a pre-existing relationship with Robinson’s trainer, and he and team president Steve Mills were longtime friends with Raymond Brothers, Robinson’s agent.

Sometime this spring, they brought him in for a visit, trying to assuage their concerns over dinner and learn more about the 20-year-old center.
