I wanted to touch base real quick with job about a recent acquisition that the Knicks have made.
I I've gone into free agency and the possible trades that we're going to take place this weekend on my YouTube channel on today's video, but I didn't touch based on miles power, Miles Power out of Seton Hall University was signed to an undrafted free agent contract with the Knicks.
I think this is no coincidence that it coincides with the release of Kenny Woo because Miles is now going to probably take.
Kenny was placed on a two way deal with the Knicks on day.
Have Jared Harper down also in the D League.
So I think they're gonna bring busy bodies Vegas into the regular roster, which is probably, which is definitely good news.
They're probably gonna bring him up to the regular roster.
And Jared Harper and Miles Power will be in the G League now Miles power coming out of Seton Hall.
He's 23 years old, so he's a bit older, Um, 60 listed at six to something.
He's a little shorter, but he listed at six to about £200.
Hey, is, um a tremendous shooter, tremendous shooter.
Miles Power, um, is a threat from from deep from any place on the court.
He can shoot the rock.
That's that's his calling card.
He's definitely a shooter.
But of course, there is a reason he went undrafted, even though he's a shooter, even though he was playing a year in his conference, he was in a big time school.
And Seton Hall? Um, he's very slow of foot defensively.
He's not a good defender.
He doesn't have the eye popping athleticism that you want, you know also, so he's not.
He's not eye poppingly athletic, and he's not a great defender.
But he would be a specialist, somebody that could come into the league and be Kyle Korver and can shoot the Rock Now.
That's probably why they're putting him on a Geely contract, because the only question is when a guy that has that type of skill, where the guy that has this type of ah, of calling card you want to see can you get it off in the N B A.
Okay, that's what you want to know.
It's not guaranteed, but that's what you wanna find out.
So you put him in.
You bring them into the D League and you see what he could do there.
Okay, You see if he could make any improvements defensively, because again, we have Tom Thibodeau.
Is that coach? You gotta come and play defense.
You're gonna play for the Knicks.
But here's the reason he got the Knicks.
Attention is because he's a dynamic shooter.
He's a dynamic shoot.
He really could get hot.
Now he's he does at Seton Hall.
His three point percentage, I think, was around 34%.
It wasn't as great as you would think it would be, Um, but also I have to take into consideration that he was the focal point of Seton Hall's offense.
He was the offense, and also he because of that team's keyed on him.
And he took a lot of bad shots.
Okay, in the n B A.
That would not be the case. He would not be the focal point.
Um, you know, he would be a spot up shooter.
The question is, can he hold his own on defense now? Some say he is a short as 5 11, but he was measured at 62 and Then somebody came.
Somebody put on the Web that he was 61 and three quarters of 6. 1.5.
Something like that.
That sounds about right.
From what I looked at on the video, he looked like about 6 1.
So he's a little small, right? Especially when the guy can't defend.
All right, so you're talking about like you talk about a Fred Van Fleet who's also 61 or 5 11 in that range, but because of the way for Fleet can move his feet, get his position, use his hands efficiently.
Um, you know, he's a good defender, just like Chris Paul.
Chris Paul is also in that range, but Chris Paul has longer wingspan, but he also is one of the best defenders in the MBA.
He could move his feet, move his hips, get to the spots quick, anticipate where his opponent is going to be and beat him to that spot.
So you have to be, You know, he's not gonna have to be elite like that, but he gotta have something approaching that.
That's the problem with Miles power.
He does not have that.
He doesn't have the athleticism.
His feet move very well on defense.
But like I said, they're bringing them into the G League.
He's won a Geely contract to weigh contract.
You gonna be in a two way contract and they're going to see what he could do.
They're gonna see what he could do because the guy that could shoot the ball, as you all are very much aware, is very important in today's MBA.
You need a guy that could shoot.
So the Knicks, You know, a lot of you are asking for shooters and they're fulfilling that order because they got they kept Reggie.
But look, and we already knew they want to do that.
They got rid of everybody else.
Broads, Vegas, they got to shoot an OBE topping.
They just drafted Emmanuel quickly.
And this weekend they're going to sign a pro level shoot.
Baron, I'm telling you right now, market, they're going to sign a pro level shooting this weekend.
But at least one at least one between Bogdan Bogdanovich, Hayward, Beasley and Van Fleet.
They're gonna sign at least one of these guys.
They may get two of them.
Okay, I can't see them taking two wings.
So it'll be read fan Fleet and one of the other three, if they do, too.
Otherwise, they're just gonna do one.
Okay, But let's just assume they come away with one.
Okay? So now you got pro level shooter and let's call it be easy.
I like these the the best.
So let's call it Beazley.
You got, uh, o B.
You got Bullock.
You've got quickly, right? And you got tiki bars.
Davis, he's a good shooter.
Don't forget about everybody.
Six he's got I think he's gonna be in a regular rotate regulars roster.
How much time he gets? I don't know.
But you got five shooters right there.
And if we add event fleet, that's six.
And in fact, if we would have had a van fleet, your starting five would be Van Fleet. Beasley.
Oh, be topping Mitchell, Robinson and R. J and R.
Which means you're gonna have three shooters in the starting lineup that's going to make you see people was was really You know, all the Knick haters out here outside the Knicks nation was tripping on R J Barrett.
You didn't make the all rookie team that was dumping on them last year, and it was a terrible space and situation.
But you get to shooters in that lineup and possibly a third.
Barrett is gonna ball out this year, and he's only in his second year.
He's still only 20 years old.
This kid is going to ball out, mark my words.
He's gonna ball out this year.
And so you put him out there with a friend Van Fleet of Malik Beasley and obey topping.
You stretch the floor with this boy, he is going to destroy people.
That's what I'm trying to tell you.
Okay, so, um, Miles power Geely contract.
I mean, he really could put the ball.
I think his shot will translate into the MBA there, and I could, but I could understand the concern because of his lack of athleticism that he may not be able to get it off.
They want to make sure.
So they're gonna put him in the G League, see how he does.
And if he does well, they'll bring him up and he'll be a spot shooter.
They could bring him up as a spot up shooter.
You know, that's another shooter.
So, um, Miles power of sign for, you know, some people going crazy. This kid's underrated.
He's gonna be a star.
You know, People look at highlights and get crazy.
You know, it's no, he's if he sticks, he's gonna be a specialist.
He's gonna be a shooter, okay? If he sticks.
So I'm glad the Knicks are scouring the Earth, though, for shooters, aren't they? They scouring the Earth to see what they could bring, and they got some, so they just brought him in.
We're going to see what he could do.
It's gonna be interesting.
Westchester Knicks Because I heard Harper's been balling out also.
So Jared Harper in the backcourt with with Miles Powell, I think we're gonna have something started something to G league. So we're gonna see what happens.
But that's where we at one to drop that for you today on my YouTube channel.
We've already dropped the today's video on free agency, which is, uh, you know, is starting today.
It's gonna be an exciting weekend.
The Knicks are gonna have at least one shooter by Sunday.
They're gonna have at least one They may have to, but they're gonna have at least one.
They still should have to if you consider D.
J. Augustine a shooter.
So, like if they don't get Fred Van Fleet and they signed one of the other three, they consigned.
Still D j. Augustine.
They have plenty of cap space assigned d J. Augustine.
So that's another guy.
That's a very reliable shooter.
So, yeah, we're in good shape, Nick Nation.
We're in good shape, and I'm excited, but what we're gonna look like next week and then we got to that training camp starts.
It's time to roll. Time to roll.
Have a good weekend.
Be safe out there. Peace.
