Have the Knicks found their second star to pair with Kristaps Porzingis? And will taking a flier on a kid who hadn't played organized ball in over a year be a stroke of genius?
Here are five takeaways from the Knicks' Summer League...
Kevin Knox looks like a star
The 18-year-old took the Summer League by storm, unleashing ferocious dunks and burying threes along the way. In three games, Knox averaged 21.3 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 2.3 assists while playing 32.3 minutes per game. He slowed down a bit in his third game, but still showed flashes during it.

Mitchell Robinson's raw talent is eye-opening
The Knicks' recent second-round pick, Robinson hadn't played organized basketball for over a year, and all he did during the Summer League was fill up the stat sheet while being a menace on both ends of the floor. In five games, Robinson averaged 13.0 points, 10.2 rebounds, and 4.0 blocks.
Frank Ntilikina was solid, but limited
Last year's first-round pick, Ntilikina played in only two games, averaging 11 points and 5.5 assists on 43 percent shooting from the floor while playing 28.5 minutes per game. With tons of other guards on the roster, it's not yet clear what Ntilikina's role will be this season.
Allonzo Trier opened eyes
Trier averaged 17.0 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 3.3 assists in four games. Trier, who went undrafted out of Kentucky, signed a two-way deal with the Knicks last month, and will probably start the season in the G League.
Luke Kornet was basically invisible
Kornet, who averaged 6.7 points in 20 games for the Knicks last season, was limited to just one game due to a hamstring issue. In his lone appearance, Kornet scored 7 points on 38 percent shooting from the field.
