Kiki Vandeweghe has been busy. He had the first discussions with the Mavs' Donnie Nelson before Rod Thorn and Mark Cuban closed the deal. He was in New Brunswick Tuesday scouting UConn's Hashem Thabeet. So no surprise he took Monday off and went to a private movie screening ... with Steve Mills, Garden VP. Frank Isola says the NBA wants the Knicks to hire Thorn's special assistant.
