The New York Knicks now view Frank Ntilikina as more of a shooting guard and less of a point guard.
Ntilikina isn't quick enough with his dribble at this stage of his development to play point guard, which limits his playmaking abilities.
Ntilikina does have enough length to allow him to defend shooting guards.
Ntilikina said he’s been watching film of one of the best shooting guards currently in the NBA, Toronto’s DeMar DeRozan.
“I’m learning every day,” Ntilikina said recently. “I want to bring everything to the team. Either on the point-guard position or the 2 position. If coach wanted me to play the 5, I would have to eat, obviously.”
