North Carolinas championship-winning junior swingman Justin Jackson had participated in six NBA workouts prior to Tuesdays visit to the Knicks Tarrytown compound. This one " off the bat " felt different.

It was more teaching than all the other ones, Jackson told The Post in a phone interview. With the triangle and the other types of offenses they run, I would say it was a little more mental than physical.

Jackson, 22, felt he aced it.

I picked it up pretty easily " everyone picked it up as time went on, he said. That helped a lot as far the workout, going into different actions. For me it was just basketball, making plays and reads.

Phil [Jackson] stepped in a few times to say what he wanted to see, but it was mostly coach [Jeff] Hornacek running the workout.

The Knicks president interviewed the 6-foot-8 UNC stalwart during the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago last month. Though taking him with the eighth pick may be a stretch, the Knicks love his cerebral, winning ways and have considered moving back a few notches to pick up another asset. The Blazers, for one, have shopped their three picks (15, 20, 26) to move up in the draft.
