Coach Jeff Hornacek said Frank Ntilikina will have a "chance to compete" for the Knicks starting point guard spot. Ntilikina is just 19 years old and played limited minutes off the bench last season in France, so it would be surprising if the Knicks decided to start him or play him heavy minutes this early in his career. On the other hand, New York is clearly in rebuilding mode and may feel that it's best for his development if he gets thrown into the deep end of the pool right away. Ntilikina's competition at PG will be Ramon Sessions, Ron Baker and Jarret Jack.

Frank Ntilikina said "of course" he wants to start for the Knicks this season. This doesn't really mean much and he did walk it back after that comment. "I’m a team player. I just want what’s best for the team." The plan looks like it'll be Ntilikina coming off the bench, but the Knicks swinging and missing on a free agent PG should help his case to get minutes sooner than expected. Ntilikina could leapfrog either Ron Baker or Ramon Sessions in camp, so keep an eye on him as a fantasy stash.

Knicks' GM Scott Perry said he thinks the Knicks could use a veteran point guard to help mentor Frank Ntilikina during his rookie season. The Knicks don't have much cap space at the moment, but that could change once/if they trade Carmelo Anthony. The main takeaway here is that New York management has implied on numerous occasions that they don't feel entirely comfortable completely turning over the reigns to the 19-year-old point guard out of France, so if they are able to bring on a veteran point guard, that would likely translate to Ntilikina beginning his career with the Knicks coming off the bench.

Knicks sign G Frank Nitlikina. The No. 8 pick has yet to suit up in summer league because of a minor knee injury. The Knicks are hoping to keep him around 20 minutes to start the year, but they may have to up that number if they can't land a point guard in free agency. He'll be a stash in fantasy for now.

Frank Ntilikina (sore right knee) is doubtful to play in Wednesday's exhibition game against the against the Magic. Ntilikina has yet to go through any practice or participate in any summer league game for the Knicks due to a sore knee, and it's unlikely we'll see a change in that trend on Wednesday. To be clear, the knee injury seems relatively minor, and Ntilikina has said he fully expects to be 100 percent by training camp, but there's just no reason for him to risk a setback playing in a meaningless game.

Frank Ntilikina (sore right knee) will not play in Monday's summer league matchup against the Thunder. Knicks' head coach Jeff Hornacek said that Ntilikina may be able to return for New York's final two summer league games, but if there's any concern about him risking a setback, you can bet on Ntilikina watching from the sidelines. We should get another update ahead of Wednesday's exhibition vs. Orlando.
