that is kind of wierd

Yeah, why no Trier? A little alarming?

Trier is on the team. I'm looking forward to seeing him. Very good college player.

Can't wait to see Knox and Robinson!

As a Cuse fan I'm also excited to see Gbinije. He was so fun to watch his last 2 season with Cuse. They could have used his shooting last season!


Is Gbinije on the knick's roster? I would love for him
To come to camp with the Knicks.

I should have looked back in the thread.
You playTrey Burke... Wally Szcerbiak

Not sure how much this will improve his game also, dont want to see him take minutes away from the Rooks...

Can't lie, I want them to win the tourney. Would be one of the steps to show that we have some rotational pieces.

If I remember correctly, the Nate Robinson, Channing Frye, Demetris Nichols team won the summer league 'chip as well....See where that got us

He was a pretty good player at the 'Cuse....Thought he would stick on someone's roster. Looking forward to seeing if he added to his game.

We're bringing back a lot of members of the team from last year so perhaps there'll be better chemistry than we've seen in recent years. I'm not sure if Mudiay and Burke are even eligible to play.

It's worth noting that we'll be sporting *TWO* teenagers (Knox and Ntilikina) and a young 20 year old (Mitchell Robinson)... so it's a little early for us to declaring us as the faves to win the tourney.

All they have to do is tune-up and compete. We need a darkhorse signing to come out of it - not necessarily from our team.

The Knicks have 12 players under contract for next season plus Knox and Robinson. One of Hicks or Kornet might get the last spot. I was hoping Gbinije might have a shot at a roster spot. Maybe he gets a two way deal.

Lower the bar a bit folks, you want to see chemistry among certain sets in certain situations.
But at the same time its also a bit of an audition for some players to see what they got so its also a try out.
To make matters more complicated, you might have coach's ask players to do things they are comfortable yet with.
Winning is always good but the summer league has some purpose as well.
All the teams do this to some extent.
Be nice for frank to show us some cool stuff if he is ready to unleash the "French legion" on the league!
Or something like that!!

Nate and Frye became rotational players in the NBA. Troy Williams is a fringe NBA player at the moment. Would like to see players like Dotson and Kornet and Hicks show that they surpassed this level. Would like to see Frank, Knox, Williams show that they are superior to this level. Again these are things I would like to see. Would give momentum to them being rotational players. Doesn't mean there career is over of they don't. Jut would mean they need more seasoning. If they do win it. It also doesn't guarantee anything. But again would put more weight toward it. And will show how far Knicks developmental process has come.

I agree with you, especially the part about the young players getting some chemistry over the summer and hopefully we see some carry over into the season....I remember Williams last Summer league and I thought he proved to be superior to the competition. I dont mind him on the roster this summer, just want Knox to get as many minutes as possible...

So glad we didn't take him. Kid is obviously a bust and ATL FO must be updating their resume!
What were they thinking? Wow, epic draft mistake!!!
Oh wait, it was just a bad first half. Never mind..........

Hes really really quick, and looks to easily be able create space to get his shot off. The size and length difference was noticeable around the rim though. Will have to become automatic from mid range to open that up more.

ATL still has Shroeder, does Young start his career off the bench as a spark plug?

Jackson dropped 29 and was on fire, but his shot looks weird.

Yep, he announced it just before the draft, when he cancelled the rest of his workouts. I don't put too much stock into summer, so whatever. Nice to see Ron Baker's is getting some reps in.
