Meet the New York Knicks 2021-22. Here’s a look at the Knicks’ roster ahead of training camp:
Dwayne Bacon, 26, SG, 6ft 6in, 221 pound sterling
Comes with an unsecured contract, but a strong endorsement from his former Magic trainer Steve Clifford as a capable depth piece.
RJ Barrett, 21, SG / SF, 6-6, 214
The 2019 No. 3 overall pick appears to continue to grow after advancing into his second campaign in major shooting categories.
Alec Burks, 30, SG / SF, 6-6, 214
Versatility as a bench scorer earned him a new three-year $ 30 million pact and a rotating spot.
Evan Fournier, 28, SG, 6-7, 205
The Knicks had the most caps in the NBA, and the Frenchman was their flagship catch at $ 78 million, so the pressure is on.
Taj Gibson, 36, C, 6-9, 232
Coach Tom Thibodeau’s Favorite Crusher has renewed a two-year, $ 10 million pact after becoming a surprising leader and contributor despite the idea he’s on his last legs.
Quentin Grimes, 21, SG, 6-4, 210
The Knicks’ first-round pick (25th overall) has shown promise in the Summer League as a “3-D” player who could earn rookie minutes if the team’s defense isn’t down. the height.
Immanuel Quickley, 22, SG / PG, 6-3, 190
Won second-team All-Rookie honors, becoming an offensive spark plug and fan favorite off the bench, but expanding his role doesn’t appear to be in the cards.
Kevin Knox, 22, United States, 6-7, 215
Thibodeau doesn’t appear to be a fan, leaving the future of their 2018 lottery pick as bleak as that of the Jets.
Miles McBride, 21, PG, 6-1, 195
The West Virginia star slipped into the second round – which pleased the Knicks, as he fits the hard-nosed mold from coach to playmaker.
Nerlens Noël, 27 years old, C, 6-11, 220
He finally reached his full defensive potential last season and will fight in camp for the starting center post after a new three-year contract.
Julius Randle, 26, PF, 6-8, 250
Trying to prove his monster season, in which he was named All-Star for the first time and was selected Second Team All NBA, was no accident.
Mitchell Robinson, 23, C, 7-0, 243
Despite his advantages, he must show he can play over 70 games in a season as the Knicks decide what their 2019 second-round pick deserves on a contract extension.
Derrick Rose, 32, PG, 6-2, 200
Kicks off the season with boyfriend Thibodeau after joining the midstream in 2020-21 and proving to be the club’s second MVP.

After finding his rhythm in the Summer League, expect the 2020 Lottery Pick minutes to increase as Randle’s save.
Jericho Simms, 22, C, 6-9, 250
Looked like a big common thread in the Summer League and could split the time between the Knicks and the G-League in a two-way deal.
Luca Vildoza, 26, PG, 6-3,190
The Argentine struggled with ankle injuries in the summer league as he tried to make a first impression after signing a four-year unsecured deal.
Kemba Walker, 31, PG, 6-0, 184
Team president Leon Rose could be the Executive of the Year candidate if the Bronx native returns to his All-Star form and the Knicks return to the field again.
MJ Walker, 23, 6-5, SG, 213
The signatory to Exhibit 10 will likely start at Westchester, but his defense could give him a future for the Knicks.
