To be more complete, Quentin Grimes works with Penny Hardaway during the summer


Summer loaded for Quentin Grimes, who hopes to establish himself for good in Tom Thibodeau’s rotation at the Knicks.

After a very good Summer League, where he finished in the best five with 21.4 points on average at 41% success, 4.2 rebounds and 4.0 assists, the back went to work with Penny Hardaway.

“He is a bit like an uncle to me”explains the Knicks player about the Memphis college coach. “He took me under his wing and helped me progress to point guard, because that’s what I was in high school. »

For his first season in the NBA, Tom Thibodeau mainly used him at the back, mainly in « catch-and-shoot », but Quentin Grimes thinks he needs to rework certain aspects of the game for next year.

“Last year, they didn’t necessarily need me for that. I just had to get on the pitch, defend hard and put my shots in. » he elaborates a bit. “I feel that next year my role will be a bit broader…I’m a scorer, really. I like going halfway, I like going all the way to the circle, recovering from fouls. I like to have a full game. »
