D’Antoni: Two Rookies Will be in Rotation
(Knicks coach Mike) D’Antoni said though his two rookies — center Josh Harrellson and first-rounder combo guard, Iman Shumpert — had poor shooting nights, they will be in the opening-day rotation. The two youngsters combined to shoot just 4 of 22, but they have added defensive grit to go along with Chandler’s defensive demeanor.
“It’s going to be a pretty long rotation all year,” D’Antoni said. “It should be at least 10, 11 guys, maybe even 12. I think the two rookies, they are going to be a part of everything and have earned some time.’’
