“The thing that gets me upset sometimes is he gets a bad rep,” Ricardo Carrasco told USA TODAY Sports. “He’s not a bad kid. He’s never been in trouble. He’s never been arrested… He grew up in a loving environment. It gets me upset when people talk about a broken home.”
“He’s one of the most talented basketball players I’ve seen in a while,” said Bucks point guard Michael Carter-Williams, who played with Ledo for a year at St. Andrew’s high school in Rhode Island. “I think it’s been tough on him just because he hasn’t got a chance in the NBA, really. He didn’t get a chance to play in college. I think (the Knicks) see a little bit of his talent, but I think as time goes, you’ll see a lot more.” Ledo and Carter-Williams plan on working out together this summer, just like they have for the past few years. But unlike Carter-Williams, Ledo’s NBA future is uncertain. He needs to get in better shape, improve his defense and learn New York’s triangle offense to remain with the organization.
The Knicks have an option to sign him for next season, but his reduced role in the past week means he could be looking to join another team soon. The uncertainty doesn’t bother Ledo.
