Grimes, Sims, McBride starring in the Knicks Summer Team

Sophomores Quentin Grimes, Miles McBride and Jericho Sims will headline the New York Knicks’ summer team in Las Vegas this July.

Their only pick this year—Duke’s 42nd pick of Trevor Kells—will also play in Las Vegas alongside undead players Jean Monteiro and Garrison Brooks, who have signed 10 show deals with the Knicks.

Grimes and Sims are preparing to break the regular season rotation after the departure of Alec Burks and Nerlens Noel.

Grimes showed flashes of powerful triple and triple potential as he was pushed into the starting line-up halfway through the Knicks-ravaged COVID-19 season. Sims may have played his way out of a two-way contract towards the end of the season. The Knicks are expected to turn their duo contract into an NBA record contract, according to SNY’s Ian Begley.

McBride’s role is unclear, pending the moves of the Free Knicks Agency. With the Knicks adding a high-profile start in Galen Bronson, Derek Rose returning in full health, and Emmanuel Quikley looming to have a more prominent role, McBride could be on the outside.

Keels is a candidate to join one of the two-way player sites for the Knicks. A plump, 6-foot-3, former five-star recruit, he had one season and inconsistent action at Duke, which caused him to fall in the second round. Had he stayed for another season, there’s a good chance he could have worked his way into the first round of the next NBA Draft. However, it is expected to be

Monteiro is an interesting potential 18-year-old from the Dominican Republic who played in the Elite League last season. 6-foot-3 Montero is an offensive dynamo, emerging as the scoring champ for the inaugural OTE season. He held the record for goalscoring in a single game (33 points) and scored in double digits in 21 games, including five games of 20 points. Per 40 minutes, he averaged 25.0 points, 6.8 assists, 11 rebounds, and 5.1 shots.

Brooks left Mississippi State averaging 6.6 rebounds per game while scoring 10.4 points per game on a 45.8 rebounding percentage.

The notable former Knicks draft pick will miss the NBA Summer League. Lithuanian goalkeeper Rukas Jukubaitis, who was drafted into 34th place in 2021, after two selections after McBride, will not join the squad after undergoing ear surgery after the Euroleague season, according to Basket News. Jokubaitis is expected to stay another year in Europe. He recently won the Euroleague Rising Star Cup while playing for FC Barcelona, ​​which finished third in the European League.

Other players who will be watching the action are Vieron Hunt, who replaced Luka Samanic as the second two-way player for the Knicks last season, and Westchester Knicks key players Amer Sims, MJ Walker and Quinton Rose. The team included Jahvon Blair, Vince Edwards, Daquan Jeffries, Micah Potter and Dashun Schwartz.

They will open their Summer League campaign against the Golden State Warriors on July 8, followed by games against Chicago (July 10), Portland (July 11) and Orlando (July 14). All games will be broadcast over the MSG network.
