The point guard position was a bit of a weak spot for the New York Knicks last season. Well, that’d be a charitable way to put it, anyway. Another would be: the Knicks’ point guards got totally and completely outproduced on a nightly basis last season, with starter Jose Calderon unable to break down opponents off the dribble or stay in front of them on defense, and young backups Langston Galloway and Jerian Grant unable to consistently hit jumpers or facilitate in the Knicks’ triangle half-court offense. The Knicks added former Memphis and Philadelphia live wire Tony Wroten last year, but he’ll be coming off a torn ACL and has yet to establish himself as a consistent top-flight answer.
