The disparity was evident in Monday’s game with the Pacers as Duarte played his first summer league game. He showed why the Knicks lusted after him. Duarte scored 14 points in 26 minutes, making 3 of 7 3-pointers, and registering two blocks. Afterward, Duarte said he was aware the Knicks were trying to move up but was just happy to be picked so high. Duarte blocked Grimes’ shot on a fast break, then demonstrated his jumping ability by leaping to reject with two hands an Obi Toppin runner. According to a source, Knicks senior vice president William Wesley was Duarte’s biggest fan and sat courtside in watching Duarte’s polish Monday.
They are an odd couple: Knicks rookie shooting guard Quentin Grimes and his half brother, Tyler Myers, a 13-year NHL veteran defenseman who plays for the Canucks. Myers was born in Houston, but was raised in Calgary with his oil-man father and led the hockey life. He became one of the slickest skaters patrolling the blueline, known for his finesse, even at 6-foot-8. He won the NHL’s Rookie of the Year award in 2010.
