NYK Center: 6’11, 240 lbs; 2nd year, Spain

NBA Role: (raw) two-way center • Star UnderDOG

Guillermo “Willy” Hernangomez is stateside, making a big impact in Jeff Hornacek’s rotation; huge (6’11), mobile big who can both protect the paint and score a little bit inside – Willy has good hands, normally goes up strong; limited scoring from the perimeter, lacks an outside jumper; Knicks don’t have a stopper – is Willy that guy? – Hernangomez is quick & rangy, w/ the smarts & anticipation to help and recover (now, learning schemes & Coach Hornacek’s strategy is priority); as Hernangomez matures, look for a premiere role in NYK’s starting five; older bro. of Juan Hernangomez (DEN)

Signature Move: fake, driving dunk
