Miles McBride, Jericho Sims assigned to G-League by Knicks

The Knicks are getting Miles McBride and Jericho Sims some game reps as the two wait for more opportunities to contribute.

The young duo, both in their second year with the team, were assigned to the Knicks’ G-League affiliate, the Westchester Knicks, for their game against the College Park Skyhawks on Thursday night. The Knicks did not practice Thursday after playing three games in four nights.

The active 6-foot-9 Sims has performed well for the Knicks when given a chance, averaging 4.7 points, 4.9 rebounds and a block in 13.9 minutes, but hasn’t seen rotation minutes in the last three contests. He was instrumental in the Knicks’ two best wins of the year, on the road against the Nuggets and Jazz, and recently played well in a narrow home loss to the Trail Blazers.

For now, Sims is the odd man out in the team’s center rotation, as Mitchell Robinson and Isaiah Hartenstein get the bulk of the minutes. McBride received some limited opportunities to play while Derrick Rose and Cam Reddish were out, but has returned to his role off the bench since the duo returned.

It was a busy and challenging November for the Knicks. It included four straight and 11 games against teams over .500. They went 7-9. December numbers will be easier. Only two in a row, both of which are at home, and of the Knicks’ 15 games, only five are against teams with winning records at the moment.

The Knicks’ four home wins in 10 games are tied for second most in the Eastern Conference. Only the Pistons and Hornets have fewer. Each has three. Their six road wins (in 12 chances), however, are second in the conference, trailing only the Celtics’ seven.
