Marcus Landry playing ahead of Jordan HillPosted by Inside Hoops
So far this season, New York Knicks rookie forward Jordan Hill has helped the Knicks about as much as you have.
Unless you buy the team’s jerseys or tickets to see them play. Then, you’ve helped more.
Frank Isola of the New York Daily News reports:
It’s bad enough for Jordan Hill that as a lottery pick on a losing team, he can’t pry himself off the Knicks’ bench.
The worst part, however, is that Hill sits while another rookie, an undrafted one at that, plays ahead of him. Marcus Landry, the Knicks’ rags to riches story, has factored into Mike D’Antoni’s plans recently at the expense of Hill, whose claim to fame right now is that the Knicks selected him last June over Brandon Jennings, who is now starring with the Bucks.
“It’s a little frustrating not playing,” Hill said about his limited role. “But I understand where Coach is coming from. There are veterans in front me.”
Hill this season has played in 11 games and averages 3.8 points and 2.2 rebounds in 8.4 minutes.
