Deuce McBride suited up in his New York Knicks uniform for the first time on Sunday as he made his NBA Summer League Debut. It was the Knicks vs. the Toronto Raptors in Las Vegas and it was the latter that earned the win, 89-79.

The former Mountaineer played just shy of 26 minutes and tallied nine points, five rebounds (four defensively), two assists, and a steal in his first showing. After scoring his first points as a Knick, ESPN analyst Fran Fraschilla confirmed on the broadcast McBride is “money” from mid-range.
