The Knicks let him walk. New York was up in arms against Knicks management, but was it the right decision? Here is what an experienced NBA scout said on the matter:
Eastern Conference NBA scout:
"He's kind of settling into what he really is. On an average team, he can be a starter. On a good team, he's going to have to be a backup.
"He's still not a great shooter and I don't know if that will ever change. He'll absolutely work at it, but he's got a flawed jump shot that's ingrained in him. And he's still a right-hand dominant player who has a tough time going left and finishing to his left and makes questionable decisions going left.
"My other concern would be (James) Harden. There's no question Harden takes the (burden of the) spotlight off Jeremy, but that means Jeremy has to play off the ball when they're out there together. That's not his strength."
