    Interesting that Kuz and WHG are flying over from Europe to play but our wunderkind KP is back in Latvia, wasn't here last year either. I guess a superstar like him has nothing to prove even if it means being a leader and bonding with his boys.

    It's not weird at all

    Established players with guaranteed starting positions don't usually play in the Summer League because they've already proven themselves and earned a spot in the rotation

    Summer League is mostly for rookies to play against teams of other NBA-level players (in college even the best teams only have 1 or 2 NBA-level guys, Kentucky being the exception since Calipari probably pays his guys). Porzingis has nothing to gain and everything to lose (injury, etc.) if he shows up at Summer League

    I'm more surprised he's working out in Latvia because when he was drafted he always talked about how the best thing about the US is that the gyms are always open and there's always a place to hit the weights but hey, as long as he works out and gets stronger and improves his game, I'm all good

    WHG is a professional B.ball player having winning skills .. i can not say the same bout KP two season of undeveloped performance, i will just keep mentioning KP is not a starter in the NBA unless the team is tanking.

    I do want to see how well our 3 draft picks perform on the court with WHG/Plumlee/Kuz/N'Dour

    The Timberwolves has the undrafted 6.4 SG Deonte Burton on their SL roster .. 9 out of 10 Burton 2-way performance will replace Lavine in their rotation next season.
    Phil n Mills do not have any real decent NBA or college Draft Scouts in the Knicks organization.

    KP could fly over and watch from the bench to support his boys Kuz and WHG even if he didn't play. Like I said he wasn't here last year either while Kuz and WHG who are starting their second seasons are playing Summer League. I think he reads too much of his press clippings too tell you the truth, it's making his head swell.

    He doesn't have to play and guys like him usually don't but he should be there to support his brethren. Guys like John Wall and Gannis make it a point to check in on their guys during Summer League. #kporzee is taking all his diva tips from Melo this much is clear. I don't like him at all, the way he ended the season and how he's carrying himself is a total turnoff.

    I bet Embiid is there to cheer for Fultz as well. KP better step up his game this season, Knicks fans are going to be disappointed if he doesn't improve much this season.

    Maybe he makes a showing, who knows. Not the biggest deal if he doesn't but it would mean a helluva lot more if he did. Embiid is simply joyus to Sixer world. What a breath of fresh air he is for their franchise and they've lost plenty more games than we have and in some respects been quite as dysfunctional but I think we can all see a difference when an organization has a dominant synergy type spirit at the core, compared to what we have.

    Sixers had a dysfunctional front office, no free agents flocking to sign there, lost plenty of games, rumors that their young players were going to be traded and possibly their coach getting fired. Embiid even got called out himself by the organization as they had concerns he wasn't taking his job seriously. What did he do? Rose above it and became that one constant positive optimistic individual in their organization. He's so vibrant that even Fultz cracked a joke recently on his personality/character...

    Fultz said Embiid txt him all the time, I think he said a number like 75 times in a 24-48hr span since he was drafted and was positive/upbeat about their future. He said he doesn't mind the txt msgs but is concerned about Embiid's Data Plan...

    Correction to the Knicks roster, WHG, KUZ, Baker won't play. WHG and Kuz preparing for the Euro games and Baker is entering FA (injury risk). No matchup between Frank and DSJ either, DSJ will play in Vegas but not Orlando.

    The latest roster. Not enough games to get a good look at all these guys imo, Knicks are really a poor organization not to be sending them to Vegas like the Mavs and other teams are doing.

    Would like to see as many of our guys play in these two leagues but whatever. I think it's smart of the Mavs and other teams(if they're playing both leagues) to hold off playing for the Vegas league for reason you mentioned and to pickup the schemes/game plan before stepping on court. If guys could play both that would be good too.

    Doesn't matter at this point with Knicks, we're going to have another horrible season
