“It’s always about the kids, trying to create a platform where they can improve their skills have some fun on a Saturday and keep them busy”. – Coach Denard Taylor Las Vegas Knicks
Was one of the first players I identified at the event. He was quick to ball, getting a bunch of steals in the press, using long arms to get tips and deflections. Showed an advanced offensive game, using floaters to finish in the lane.
If ever a player did one thing consistently well it’s Morales. He’s perhaps the best rim runner I’ve seen in his class. He plays hard and doesn’t need the ball to score. He was impressive moving without the ball and finishing in transition.
Pure PG that plays with great pace. He’s a lefty and prefers getting to his left hand, but finished with both. His overall finishing ability is good as he was unaffected by contact or contest on his drives.

Hunter was dominant today. He has a lean frame, but is stronger than he looks. He took a lot of bumps on his drives and finishes without losing the ball or missing shots. Played with a different burst, easily blowing by the first defender.
Mckinney was the best pure rebounder I saw. He was aggressive and played with a ton off passion and aggression. Unlike a lot of young bigs, he has no problem being physical, bulling through opponents for rebounds and layups.
