Las Vegas, Nevada – Miles “Deuce” McBride, who was picked 36th overall in the 2nd round of the 2021 NBA Draft last month, made his NBA debut for the New York Knicks in the Summer League today.
Although the Knicks lost 89-79 to the Toronto Raptors in their Summer League opener, McBride had a great showing.
McBride made his first shot of his Knicks career, a beautiful mid-range jumper that is very familiar to West Virginia fans.
