The New York Knicks recently wrapped up their 2021 Summer League stint out in Las Vegas. Over the course of six games, in which they faced the Raptors, Pacers, Lakers, Pistons, Cavaliers, and Hawks respectively, the Knicks finished with a 4-2 record. Although they did not get to play in the tournament for a chance at the Summer League Championship, the kids looked good.

It was an incredibly fun six games to watch, making it even more difficult for fans to wait for the start of the 2021-22 season. The New York faithful are itching to see more of the young Knick neophytes.

The “veterans” for the team were Immanuel Quickley and Obi Toppin. The two players put on some incredible performances as they prepare for their sophomore seasons. The Knicks’ other notable top Summer League players were each of their three 2021 draft selections. Rookies Miles “Deuce” McBride, Quentin Grimes, and Jericho Sims all had their own show-stopping highlights and impressive stat lines that supported the decisions by Leon Rose and the New York front office to draft those players.

While it was only six games, the Knicks’ young core already looks very promising and there were a bunch of positive takeaways. Each listed player has either shown improvement from last season or has displayed skills that will allow them to contribute as they enter the NBA. All 5 of them passed this Summer League with flying colors, but this article will give a specific letter grade to represent their individual production.
