“They both helped me for sure just going in drills, telling me what to expect, competing every day in training camp, how it’s going to be during the season, just little things to do recovery-wise,” Grimes said. “Just having two big-time veterans like that, it’s going to be really good for my development for sure.”
On a depth chart provided by ESPN, Grimes is listed fourth at shooting guard behind starter Evan Fournier, Alec Burks and Rose.
The Knicks are slated for 29 nationally-televised games this season, including the ESPN family of networks, TNT and NBA TV. New York hosts the Rockets on Saturday, Nov. 20 while Grimes comes to his hometown on Thursday, Dec. 17 at Toyota Center.
