Knicks G Miles McBride

Former WVU G Miles McBride started for the first time during the 2023-24 season on Saturday night for the New York Knicks. McBride finished the game with a career high of 19 points, six rebounds and five assists in a 106-94 win over the Memphis Grizzlies.

McBride shot 7-of-10 from three with 4-threes in 38 minutes of play.

McBride recently signed a $13 million extension with the Knicks over the next three years. The Knicks traded away RJ Barrett and Immanuel Quickley to the Toronto Raptors in late December, creating more playing time for McBride.

McBride is averaging 3.9 points through 26 games while averaging 8.2 minutes per contest.

McBride saw more opportunities during his second year in the NBA with the Knicks. McBride appeared in 64 games during the 2022-23 season. McBride averaged 3.5 points and 1.1 assists last season. The Cincinnati, Ohio, native shot 36 percent from the field. The Knicks picked up McBride’s team option before NBA free agency began this past offseason.

McBride played two seasons at West Virginia from 2019-21, leading the Mountaineers to an NCAA Tournament appearance during his sophomore year. McBride averaged 15.9 points, 3.9 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 1.9 steals per game.
