The Westchester Knicks have developed a top-notch development organization in White Plains, New York. Since the team joined the NBA G League (then D-League) in 2014, 11 players have earned a combined 15 NBA call-ups and 10 of those were direct promotions to the New York Knicks.
The Knicks totaled five call-ups during the 2017-18 season, which was tied for the most with the Texas Legends and Northern Arizona Suns. The team has seen 10 call-ups over the past three seasons, which is second in the NBAGL behind the Canton Charge and Sioux Falls Skyforce (11).
Westchester went 17-24 during the 2019-20 season, while Kenny Wooten signed a two-way contract with the New York Knicks and Lamar Peters was positioning himself to earn an NBA call-up if the season wasn’t suspended. One of the Dub Knicks’ assistant coaches, Keith Bogans, was promoted to New York’s staff for the same position in December of 2019.
Arden Franklyn, who has covered the Westchester Knicks since 2014, joined The Chris Priczak Show to discuss Westchester’s 2019-20 season, how the organizations values their affiliate where players and coaches have seen promotions to the New York Knicks, how the affiliate has created a platform for young players and veterans to make the NBA, and more.
