The New York Knicks feature several NBA-experienced players, such as Jericho Sims, Miles McBride, Quentin Grimes and DaQuan Jeffries, among others.

McBride is trying to earn a permanent roster spot next season and is not disappointing. He has combined for 44 points and 17 assists in three games so far and is showing off his range from beyond the arc.

Moreover, 23-year-old center Jericho Sims has been excellent on the glass. He has grabbed double-digit rebounds in all three games so far and also combined for five blocks.


Key Player - Quentin Grimes

Quentin Grimes has been putting on a show this summer and has almost certainly earned himself a roster spot. He has dropped 24 points in all three games and has done so with great efficiency as well.

Grimes is knocking down shots from beyond the arc and also showing off his playmaking skills. He has combined for 18 assists in three games so far.

Notable Vegas storyline—Quentin Grimes' breakout. Averaging 24 PTs, 4.3 ASTs, 1.7 STLs through 3 games. Looks a level above everyone else. Value obviously tied to shotmaking but he's delivered lot more 2PT play finishing + setting up teammates. Feels like Knicks next starting SG. https://t.co/fG5FEoGu1o

He has combined for 29 boards in the first three games so far, including a 14-rebound outing in the last contest. He had a game-saving block in overtime against the Kings and made the game-winning bucket in double-overtime.
