April 6, 2005 -- With the college basketball season over, Isiah Thomas, in full draft mode, is off to Europe next week for the second time this season, sources said.
Before heading overseas, the Knicks president will head to the first pre-draft camp for college seniors in Portsmouth, Va., that begins today and also a Memphis event that includes a European all-star team over the weekend.

Next week, the Euro league is amidst quarterfinal play in outposts such as Tel Aviv, Italy and Greece. Thomas took a 10-day trip to Europe in February, mostly to Spain. Because of his increased scouting, he hasn't traveled with the team since December.

The Knicks, who need a center and shooting guard, have two first-round picks — this year and next year. One of this year's picks will be a lottery one; the other either 28th or 29th, depending on the Suns' finish.

After Utah's Andrew Bogut, the second-best center in the draft is 7-3 Lithuanian center Martynas Andriuskevicius, who has piqued Thomas' interest. However, some scouts believe the 19-year-old center is a borderline lottery pic
