4. Troy Williams isn't taking any chances

Troy Williams was released by the Rockets in Feb., and the Knicks were fortunate enough to sign him to a couple of 10-day contracts before signing him for the remainder of the 2017-18 season.

Williams knows his deal for 2018-19 is non-guaranteed, so he’s not taking any chances. The 23-year-old is getting his shots up, 12 in Saturday’s game, in just 16 minutes. The veteran scored 17 points, and New York was a plus-16 with him on the court.

This is how summer league should be played. With fringe rotation guys going all out on every possession. If you truly love basketball, then you love watching guys like Williams compete for a roster spot and playing time.

Williams has a few more games to show the Knicks staff what he can do. He’ll likely want more than 16 minutes to show off his skills when New York squares off with Grayson Allen and the Utah Jazz on Sunday at 9 pm E.T.
