Troy Williams on signing with the Knicks: "Great opportunity, great fit. Their interest level here was a little bit higher than everybody else’s. Like I said, it was a great fit and great opportunity."
Ian Bagley reports that it looks like Emmanuel Mudiay will start at point guard tomorrow against the Magic.
Mudiay on the potential start: “I’m not going to take it for granted. I came in as a lottery pick so I was kind of handed the spot & stuff like that. So the fact that I’m in that position again it’s a blessing. Thank God for it. I just have to take full advantage.”
