Emmanuel Mudiay might be the New York Knicks’ best point guard.
With the New York Knicks’ season down the drain, they’re expected to make some major line-up changes after this weekend’s All-Star break.
Knicks’ head coach Jeff Hornacek told reporters after Wednesday’s embarrassing loss to the Washington Wizards, that he plans on playing his younger players more after the break.
This means we won’t see Jarrett Jack as much and he could end up losing his starting job.
“It’s probably all three of those young guys (playing more) — Frank, Emmanuel and Trey — and we’ll slide a couple of them in the two-guard spot,” Hornacek said, via the NY Daily News. “Whether it’s Trey and Emmanuel or some combination of those guys — Emmanuel and Frank, as well.”
So, who will start at point guard? Will it be Emmanuel Mudiay, Trey Burke or Frank Ntilikina?
If I were to make a guess, I would go with Mudiay. He’s been in the league longer than Ntilikina and is playing better than the 19 year-old French rookie. But I would expect Ntilikina to get quite an uptick in his minutes as well.
Mudiay is also a lottery pick that has plenty of potential, while Burke may never live up to the hype that followed him from the University of Michigan.
Mudiay has been averaging 8.6 points and three assists per game while connecting on 39 percent of his field goals so far as a New York Knick.
