09:58 AM ET 10.31 | The Knicks are cooperating with a league investigation into allegations they conducted illegal pre-draft workouts, CBSSports.com has learned. Yahoo! Sports reported Tuesday that the Knicks conducted workouts with collegiate prospects throughout suburban Atlanta in 2007, 2009 and 2010 during restricted periods, which would be a serious violation of NBA rules. The workouts, allegedly conducted by East Coast scouting director Rodney Heard, included prospects Wilson Chandler, whom the Knicks drafted with the 23rd pick in 2007, and former Kansas All-American Brandon Rush, who seriously injured his knee in one of the sessions, according to the Yahoo! report. Rush has admitted participating in the workouts; Chandler has denied it.

When you haven't had a winning season in 10 years, there's no such thing as illegal workouts.

David Stern has been a great commish for the league, but he baffles me these days. Some of the things he is doing with the officiating is crazy and he has to be careful that he does not allow the owners to have a lockout or he might end up like the captain of a sinking ship!
