The New York Knicks have a roster entrenched with young talent.
In spite of the established veterans and win-now mindset of coach Tom Thibodeau, the Knicks have been able to find a balance of competitive basketball while still developing some talented young players.
The team’s rookies will only add to the already impressive bank of young talent.
New York Knicks rookies bring impressive skillsets
The Knicks left the draft with four selections — Quentin Grimes, Rokas Jokubaitas, Miles McBride, and Jericho Sims. While we got to see Jokubaitas in the Summer League, he will still be playing overseas this season.
As for the other three, they could all see the court with the Knicks this season.
Likely to be towards the end of the bench, Quentin Grimes and Miles McBride should still be able to carve out roles on this team given their unique skillsets. Jericho Sims may be able to find a spot given the Knicks’ current lingering injuries at the center position.
All three players flashed immense potential in the NBA Summer League.
I dug up some interesting stats, one for each player, that can help indicate what type of players they have the potential to become in the NBA.
