As the season drew to a close, the offseason gave fans a chance to see players working on their skills. Whether it’s through individual drills, mini-games or playing in the professional leagues, this has been an active time for the Knicks roster.

Knicks members RJ Barrett, Cam Reddish and Trevor Keels are back at Duke University last week. All of them were former Duke Blue Devils players under the guidance of former Hall of Fame coach, Mike Krzyzewski. The three players were also full-timers, playing only their first season before being drafted.

Barrett and Reddish were teammates during the 2018-2019 season at Duke. This team has made headlines in basketball for its dominant performance and has All-Star player Zion Williamson, who ended up being the number one pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.

“Historically, Thibodeau has shown appreciation for players who enter the training camp in peak condition,” Bigley said. “So it’s fair to assume that players who are in good shape early in camp will have an early edge in the competition for rotational minutes/positions.”

The training camp has been scheduled

The New York Knicks will start their training camp in September 27. This year’s bootcamp will be very interesting because of the many storylines. There will be a focus on recent free signings with the agent, Jalen Brunson and Isaiah Hartenstein.

Bronson was signed to be the starting point guard for the New York Knicks. The newer Knicks will take on the responsibilities of creating play for his teammates and creating the humiliation for himself. Hartenstein signed to support Mitchell Robinson. The new Knicks Center is known for Two-way play As well as the ability to space the floor with a circumferential shot.

Another interesting factor to watch during training camp and pre-season work is who will be in the rotation. The Knicks roster has many young players talented enough to have minutes, but not everyone can play. Ian Begley reports that Emmanuel Quikley is expected to get an increased role this season. Where does that leave a young player like Quentin Grimes or even veterans like Evan Fournier and Derek Rose?

There are many questions to be asked about what exactly the Knicks have planned. Fortunately, the answers will be revealed soon as the regular season will have less than a month left.
