Yes, he is better than some of those selected
No, he needs to prove he is better than those selected
He's ranked 5 on the rookie ladder. It is a little hard to believe he's not playing.
ehh he is more skilled than some chosen. However he was a 2 guard being asked to play point up until 3 games ago, he will finally be able to play his game as a 2guard. Also those assistant coaches only look at scoring BS. shoot Fields honestly probably snuck in with his recent recent return to form again due to the overall fail (in comparison to some years) his draft class was.
the main thing is right now the knicks have 4 rookie/sophmore players that look like they belong in the NBA (with only 1 being drafted in the first round). A ton of teams don't even come close to that.
