The talent evaluator was jesting, but it’s evidence of the buzz created among NBA congnescenti by the 6-foot-9 Knicks lottery-pick forward at the Las Vegas summer league after...

Ron Baker’s best Knicks shot could be long gone

NY Post (Marc Berman) — LAS VEGAS — A year ago, Knicks young guard Ron Baker sat atop the world, signing a shocking new two-year, $9 million contract with the coveted room exception. Off a promising Cinderella rookie year, he gained a reputation as a hard-nosed physical defender and became a prominent piece of the franchise’s young core. Even though...

Kyle O’Quinn mocks dreadful Knicks on his way out

The new Frank Ntilikina appears in a great sign for Knicks

NY Post (Marc Berman) — LAS VEGAS — In Saturday’s summer-league opener versus the Hawks, the new Frank Ntilikina looked much like the Frank Ntilikina of old. A demon on defense. A five-point, three-turnover dud on offense. That changed Sunday versus the Jazz in the Knicks’ 90-85 loss. In the opening two minutes, Ntilikina scored on two driving layups, then...

This isn’t the Frank Ntilikina Knicks were hoping to see

NY Post (Marc Berman) — LAS VEGAS — At this stage, Knicks coach David Fizdale is not ready to take issue with any of his young charges. After point guard Frank Ntilikina’s mixed summer-league debut Saturday, Fizdale wouldn’t nitpick about the 19-year-old point guard’s offensive production looking very similar to last season’s. In Saturday’s opening win over Atlanta, Ntilikina hounded...

Knicks lock up the athletic draft pick they had to have

NY Post (Marc Berman) — LAS VEGAS — The Knicks were so worried rookie Mitchell Robinson wasn’t going to drop to No. 36 in the second round that they mulled trading up a few notches to ensure they’d be able to nab him, according to an NBA source. That’s how highly Knicks scouts had rated the 20-year-old center. Knicks general...

Knicks’ other draft pick flashes rim-protecting ability

NY Post (Marc Berman) — LAS VEGAS — Knicks rookie Mitchell Robinson shook his head emphatically just as he was shaking off all the rust from a 14-month layoff. In his summer-league debut Saturday after not playing since April 2017, the 7-foot project center made a highlight block at the rim on Atlanta’s Jock Landale. Instead of a Dikembe Mutombo...

Kevin Knox has rim-rocking day in Knicks’ summer-league debut

NY Post (Marc Berman) — LAS VEGAS — Kevin Knox’s 8-for-20 shooting line doesn’t tell the whole tale of a summer-league debut filled with rocking rims and an ocean of promise for the Knicks’ 2018 lottery pick. Though Knox tailed off in the second half, the 18-year-old put up 22 points while showing he can take it hard and often...

Juwan Howard Jr. is forging his own path to NBA dream

NY Post (Marc Berman) — LAS VEGAS — Juwan Howard Jr. hasn’t taken the same Fab Five route through Michigan to the NBA that his father traveled. The elder Howard never played in the leagues of Luxembourg or Mexico or Finland, nor did he get cut by an NBA summer-league team before the opener. The son, a 6-foot-6 small forward...

NYC’s best high school prospect in years won’t stop until he’s on top

NY Post (Zach Braziller) — His future isn’t riding on a jump shot. He isn’t the ticket to get his family out of a difficult living situation. He can get into a premier college without a scholarship. Perhaps that’s what makes Cole Anthony’s rise to the top of the prep basketball world all the more impressive. He has reached this...

Why Knicks GM is giving second chance to his biggest draft bust

NY Post (Marc Berman) — LAS VEGAS — We were all jerks in our youth. That was the message from new Knicks coach David Fizdale in predicting newly signed forward Mario Hezonja has turned over a new leaf as the 23-year-old Croatian put forth a strong finish to last season. Hezonja, the fifth pick in the 2015 draft, officially signed...
