Last year in the summer league and in the Knicks training camp a player emerged as a keeper. Yes, Chris Copeland was that player, but a close 2nd was PF/C Henry Sims of Georgetown. Henry displayed an offensive skill set that I believed at the time was valuable to the Knicks due to Stoudemire’s prone to injury and the uncertainty of his production. The Knicks had one roster spot available and that went to Cope, who did not disappoint. Now, a year later the Knicks find themselves in the same position as last year: Lack of inside offensive presence! Sources say the Knicks have invited Henry to their summer league team, but he has not accepted yet. Let us hope Henry joins them in Vegas and performs well enough to get an invite to camp.
Henry understands Woody’s system, and the coaches are familiar with him as well. He spent the entire year on the Knicks D-League team until he was offered a 10-day contract with the Pelicans. He did not stay on with the Pelicans, but did turn some heads. With a year under his belt and a better understanding of what it takes to make it in the NBA, will Henry be a option for the New York Knicks? He could be!
