The Knicks hold their first practice of training camp on Oct. 1, but they worked out several veteran free agents at their facility the past two days.

A group that includes Ricky Davis, who played for six NBA teams and hasn’t played in the league since the 2009-10 season, and center DeSagana Diop worked out for the Knicks.

Center Cole Aldrich – formerly of the Thunder, Rockets and Kings – and forwards Ike Diogu and Josh Powell also reportedly worked out, according to

It’s unclear if any of these players will be invited to camp. The Knicks haven’t finalized their training camp roster yet.

They have 14 players with at least a partial guarantee for the upcoming season. The Knicks are looking to add a big man as insurance for Jeremy Tyler. He had surgery on his right foot on Sept. 5 and was expected to miss 8-10 weeks.
