Emmanuel Mudiay Denies Saying He Was Happy Not To Be Picked By Knicks

Sep 28, 2015 12:51 PM

Emmanuel Mudiay has denied telling anyone he was happy not to be drafted by the New York Knicks.

“It’s not true, I didn’t say that,” Mudiay said. “But, I think one time someone asked me, ‘How would you like to play in the triangle offense?’ I said ‘I don’t know how I would fit in that system,’ and I think that’s when they ran with it.

“So, I mean, the Knicks took their choice, they took (Kristaps) Porzingis and I wish him the best. But I can care less about the Knicks right now because that’s not who I’m playing for. I’ve just got to focus on who my team is, and that’s the Denver Nuggets.”

Mudiay had an impressive performance in Summer League.
