What convinced you to declare for the draft? Landry Shamet: There was a lot of variables. For one, just the confidence I have in myself to make something happen for myself. I’ve always trusted my gut. My gut has been telling me I should probably go do this for me and my family. I’ve had Ron Baker and Fred VanVleet in my corner. Fred told me something: basically, if you realize you’re a pro and you understand what you’re capable of, when you come to terms with the fact that the process might not go exactly how you want it to but you’re gonna make something happen for yourself, it’s an easy decision. There’s a couple alternatives and worst case scenarios with this process but I feel like I’m comfortable with them. Obviously, it’s a dream you have for a long time and being that it was a small window of opportunity, I kinda just wanted to grab it and attack it with two hands.
As Knicks guard Ron Baker contemplates the next course of action for his damaged right shoulder, one New York shoulder/knee specialist recommended season-ending surgery that would take three-to-six months of rehab before he’s back playing. The shoulder surgery would repair the torn labrum — not the dislocation. Coach Jeff Hornacek wouldn’t acknowledge Baker is done, and the Knicks announced he’s “out indefinitely.”
