Ron Baker (NYK) – “RB”
Guard: 6’4, 220 lbs; 2nd year, Wichita State
NBA Role: combo guard • UnderDOG
A four-year guy at Wichita State, Ron Baker made the Knicks as an undrafted free agent in 2016; ran the 1 & 2 for Coach Gregg Marshall (at WS) in college – Baker’s a very solid shot creator capable of making things happen when aggressive; tough on both ends: Baker is built well (at 6’4, 220), anticipates and predicts defensive action; needs to discover his true NBA role – basketball IQ & toughness has gotten Baker some early PT but an improved outside J (and in-between game) would boost his value over time; where does Ron fit (long-term) in Jeff Hornacek’s system?
Signature Shot: TBD.
