Obviously a make or break year for Frankie.... Lord knows he's a hard worker and it would be GREAT to see the hard work pay off! I hope he plays summer league again (time allowing). I think Fiz has a plan in mind this year as opposed to last when he said "let the dogs fight" and it will be interesting to see if Frank will be a PG or wing and if Fiz plans to use him as a starter or off the bench.

Mudie should be gone so I'm thinking DSJ & Frank will be the PGs with RJ, Knox, Zo & Dots taking up the wing spots... but we shall see

Is it me or Frank looks a little bigger as in weight wise? Good weight though (muscle).
A new era or error?

Still would like to see DSJ and Frank play together and see what we got. Will we ever get to see it?

I concur... it would be so silly to trade him right now. Let's see what he's got

He's finally growing into his man body.

He's going to look really good in San Antonio or wherever he gets traded to.

It could very easily happen if Fiz were inclined. RJ Barrett lifelong position has been a small forward. He played SG at Duke because of thier big 3. At the same time for Knox to truly reach his potential he probably would have to gradually shift to PF similar to a Tobias Harris and how he plays.

I doubt that's part of a starting lineup but I expect to see it used often this year assuming it's another tank year and Frank don't get traded.

The thing that's sad is the moment he shows anything the Knicks will trade him rather than believe hes made it. And I'd get it since you wanna trade high but I'm assuming that showing something means offense. To me the moment he becomes 75% of what most of our offensive players are offensively, then he's also better than any of them overall because he's a defender and they're not. Its not like any of our offensive players were flirting with 20pts or had legendary efficiency.

In other words all it takes is about 10pts on good percentages and hes in the upper tier of players we have. I'm trying to self discover who that's sadder for, Frank or everyone else.

He should although I don’t think summer league helps players that much beyond exposure or a short confidence boost.

RJ Barrett can't hit water with an oar.

Crazy that Frank is 20. Twenty. And our clown car coaches and front office could give up on him.

Frank is looking beastly, is there any team (Phoenix?) that still thinks DSJ is an NBA starter?

He made France 15 men preliminary list, so I expect him to be there, even though he might not make the final World cup cut
