Miles McBride Continues to Shine in NBA G-League as Knicks Can’t Find Consistent Role

Ever since New York Knicks guard Kemba Walker returned from injury, the Knicks can’t seemingly figure out what to do with Miles “Deuce” McBride, as the guard depth is too much. Over the past month, the Knicks have dropped McBride down to their G-League team, the Westchester Knicks, for a day or so before calling him back up not long after.

After another trip back down to the G-League, the former WVU guard had a great performance on Wednesday night against Raptors 905. McBride ended the night with 23 points on 8-of-16 shooting from the field, connecting on 3-three’s. The Cincinnati, Ohio, native also had nine assists, four rebounds and two steals to top off his great scoring night. McBride helped lead Westchester past the Raptors, 119-106.

McBride had a breakaway windmill dunk to add to his highlight reel.

The NBA rookie was throwing it down, but also was showcasing his three-point range on Wednesday.

McBride has played in 21 games in the NBA for the New York Knicks, appearing in the starting lineup two times. Through seven games with Westchester, McBride is averaging 30.4 points, 6.6 rebounds, 10.7 assists, 2.6 steals and 0.9 blocks per game.
