Willy Hernangomez scored seven points on 1-of-2 shooting (5-of-6 FTs) with 10 rebounds, three assists and no steals or blocks in Wednesday’s finale against the Sixers.
Hernangomez’s finish was a bit of a disappointment as Jeff Hornacek and the Knicks didn’t cut him loose, though he did finish with top-100 value after the All Star break in just 24 mpg. There is a strong stat set for Hernangomez to build off of, though it’s also possible he steers the other direction and goes light in the defensive categories. He’ll be among the players that ringers are watching closely heading into next year.
