Knicks Summer League Roster and Schedule: First Game Tomorrow v Denver @ 4:00pm

The Knicks Summer League team has been practicing at Clark High School the past two days.  They begin their five game stretch tomorrow at the Cox Pavilion against Denver at 1:00pm.  The game will be televised on MSG so you can get a chance to see our three draft acquisitions (Rautins, Fields and Jordan) in action and some “old” favorites like Toney Douglas, Patrick Ewing, Jr. and Warren Carter, who outplayed Jordan Hill before returning to Europe to play.  Not including Jerome Jordan, the Knicks summer roster is below:

I will be leaving for Vegas on Monday evening and expect to only see the Knicks play twice (v Toronto and Detroit).  I’ll report in daily with my observations and hopefully some interesting interviews and other intel.  After the recent frenzy, there should be a lot to learn, see and hear.
