Where does Quentin Grimes fit into the NY Knicks’ SG rotation?

This is where things get a little tricky.

Depending on what the Knicks decide to do with Luca Vildoza, Miles McBride could very well be penciled in at the backup “shooting guard” although I do think McBride would get some burn at both the 1 and the 2 during this upcoming season.

If McBride were the backup shooting guard, it would likely move Quentin Grimes to the backup 3-spot.

But as I mentioned earlier, the 2 and the 3 are basically the same thing nowadays and are just considered the wing.

So to make things simpler and not go in circles, here we are.

Summer League started off pretty slow for Quentin, but boy did he close out the summer with a few special performances.

Over his six Summer League appearances, Grimes averaged 15.3 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 3.0 assists and shot 40.7% from 3-point territory.

This included a 28-point performance against the Cavaliers.

For as long as he remains under the tutelage of Tom Thibodeau, he’ll continue to learn how to become a better and better version of himself.

The prototypical 3-and-D player, I recently compared him to Danny Green and after seeing him play in real-time, I personally love the comp.

If Immanuel Quickley or even Alec Burks were to be forced to miss some time this season, I’d be happy to have Quentin Grimes get some minutes in the Knicks’ 10-man rotation.
