Morgantown, West Virginia – Miles “Deuce” McBride’s lifelong dream of being an NBA player came true last week and now, he has received his first NBA jersey.
McBride was selected #36 overall in the second round of the 2021 NBA Draft by the Oklahoma City Thunder and then traded to the New York Knicks.
McBride will wear #2 for the Knicks when they open their Summer League schedule Sunday, August 8 vs. Toronto Raptors. That game will be televised live from Las Vegas at 4:30PM ET on ESPN2.
McBride averaged 9.5 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game as a freshman and 15.9 points, 4.8 assist and 3.9 rebounds per game as a sophomore at West Virginia. Last season, McBride earned second team All Big 12 honors for the Mountaineers.
