Drafted 25th overall by the Los Angeles Clippers in 2013, NY Knicks‘ guard Reggie Bullock has had an up and down career to date, he’s dealt with numerous injury concerns over the years in addition to his fair share of adversity and tragedy in his personal life.

The 6’7″ Bullock has played for 5 teams in 7 years in the NBA, including the past two seasons in New York after the Knicks signed him as a free agent in the 2019-2020 off-season.

Bullock’s tenure in New York didn’t get off to the ideal start, as he missed a chunk of his first season after getting surgery for a cervical disc herniation.

He returned to the court in January 2020 and played in 29 games for the Knicks before their season was shut down by the pandemic.

Bullock averaged 8.1 points per game on 40% FG and 33% from deep).

Reggie Bullock is quietly having a solid season for the NY Knicks

In his second season for the NY Knicks, Reggie Bullock is quietly having himself a really nice year and has carved out an important role as a starter for Coach Thibodeau.

Bullock isn’t the flashiest player or the biggest name on the court but he’s been an important part of the Knicks’ success this year as a consistent contributor as a 3&D wing.

His play has earned him the trust of the coaching staff as well as the respect of his teammates.

Reggie isn’t the type of player to put up big scoring numbers each night, but he’s had a solid if unspectacular season, and he’s shooting it at a 40% rate from deep, which is more than respectable:

Season Averages:

  • 43 games – 27.9 mins per game
  • 9.8 points (43.1% FG)
  • 2.2 made threes at 40.4%.
  • 1.4 assists
  • 3.4 rebounds
  • 0.7 steals

  • 3.2 made threes at 43.6%

So Reggie is the quiet achiever for New York, and he’s had a pretty solid and consistent season to date.

Over the next few slides, I will break down his capabilities as a 3&D wing.
