Mike Vorkunov: Knicks announce their Summer League roster. A few highlights: — Kevin Knox is on it — Rokas Jokubaitis will play — Luca Vildoza on it — Immanuel Quickley + Obi Toppin will play — Vets Justin Patton, Wayne Selden, Tyler Hall — Undrafted rookies: MJ Walker, Aamir Simms, Reid Travis
Obi Toppin took a few days off at the end of the Knicks season to get off his feet and re-charge. After three or four days away from the gym, Toppin returned to the Knicks practice facility to work with coaches and some of his teammates. He seems motivated to take a big step forward in 2021-22. “I’m working really hard in this offseason to be better for my second season coming up. And it’s going to be a lot different than the first season,” Toppin said Wednesday night after practice with the USA Men’s Select Team in Las Vegas.
The coaching staff felt Toppin was hurt more than many rookies by not having a summer league before his rookie year because he played in the smaller Atlantic 10 Conference against schools such as Fordham. “I’m definitely looking forward to summer league to get an opportunity to showcase what I’ve been working on,’’ said Toppin, who shot just 30.6 percent from 3-point range. “Me and Quick and everyone else playing, we are going to do great.’’
