Are you ready for the G-League? Now that the big boys have kicked off their 2017-18 campaigns, the NBA’s minor league is preparing for some action. And that includes the Westchester Knicks—still the last Knicks affiliate to make the playoffs! (They made the postseason in 2016 before falling back to the pack last season.)

Because I know you can’t get enough W-Knicks roster news, I’d like to present to you the official list for YOUR 2017-18 WESTCHESTER KNICKS!

No big surprises here. Nigel Hayes, Xavier Rathan-Mayes and Trey Burke will suit up for Westchester as Knicks affiliate players. This doesn’t mean they’ll be able to play for the big club, however—at least one player would have to be cut. The two-way players—Luke Kornet and Isaiah Hicks—will be available to spend as many as 45 days with the Knicks during the G-League season. My God, can you imagine Jeff Hornacek activating Joakim Noah AND Luke Kornet at the same time? They could legitimately carry FIVE centers! (I’ll just go ahead and shut my mouth now).

In coaching news, longtime vet Keith Bogans will assume the role of assistant coach under longtime head coach Mike Miller, making him the first former Brooklyn Net to coach for the Knicks. They really are takin’ ova!

The W-Knicks kick off the season November 4. Get pumped.
