It’s not exactly news, but a kid at the Knicks’ summer basketball camp beat Enes Kanter in a game of knockout.
It’s a slow day and we just wanted to take the opportunity to bang the drums a little bit more for Knicks rookie center Mitchell Robinson who led the Summer League with 4.0 blocks per game in under 25.0 minutes (while also contributing 10.2 boards and 13.0 points on 67 percent from the field). We’ll also remind you that Kanter’s $18.6 million contract comes off the books after next season and could be used in a trade as an expiring contract, especially if the Knicks start the season off with a whimper (owner James Dolan already said that there’s a possibility Kristaps Porzingis sits out the entire 2018-19 season as he recovers from a torn ACL). Aside from Kanter, the only other centers are the uninspiring Luke Kornet and the decrepit Joakim Noah, and while Robinson is already creeping up as a sleeper for fantasy, watch out if he ever gets significant run.
