Cleanthony Early headlines New York Knicks Summer League roster

The New York Knicks announced their 2014 Las Vegas Summer League roster on Thursday, one that is headlined by two youngsters they expect big things from.

Last year’s first-round pick Tim Hardaway Jr. and this year’s second-round selection Cleanthony Early headline the Knicks’ roster that also features center Cole Aldrich, forward Jeremy Tyler and guard Shane Larkin in addition to another 2014 second-round pick in Thanasis Antetokounmpo.

The 2014 Vegas Summer League will be held in Las Vegas from Jul. 11-21.

The Knicks will play a minimum of five games in the tournament-style format, with games scheduled to be held at Cox Pavilion on the campus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. New York’s first game is scheduled for Friday, Jul. 11 against Dallas at 1:00 p.m. Pacific Time.

In addition to Early getting his first look in a Knicks uniform, it will be the first time new Knicks head coach Derek Fisher gets a shot at being a coach.
