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.

Frank Ntilikina (knee) won't play in Sunday's Summer League game. He will miss his second straight game and it's still not clear when he will make his debut. Ntilikina just wrapped up his season with his French team just over a week ago, so there's no reason for the Knicks to rush him back. He's day-to-day and his status will be updated on Monday.

The Knicks "don't believe rookie lottery pick Frank Ntilikina is ready to start," according to Marc Berman of the New York Post. Ideally, the Knicks would love to bring in a veteran point guard for Ntilikina to learn from, and it makes sense that New York doesn't want to simply throw the No. 8 overall pick into the fire immediately. The franchise has been connected to names like George Hill and Rajon Rondo in the early stages of free agency.
