The Golden State Warriors and New York Knicks both kick off their Las Vegas Summer League action on Friday. Golden State's roster for this tournament is headlined by a couple of returning players as well as 2022 NBA Draft pick Patrick Baldwin Jr. The 6-foot-9 guard averaged 12.1 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists during his only college season at Milwaukee.
The Knicks, meanwhile, will get to see Jericho Sims play for the first time since having his two-way deal converted to a three-year standard deal. The Texas product appeared in 41 games for New York as a rookie, averaging 2.2 points and 4.1 rebounds in 13.5 minutes.

Warriors vs Knicks Prediction & Pick
On paper, this is about as even as it gets for the NBA Summer League. Both teams are trotting out second-year pros with NBA experience as well as rookies looking to make their mark. The Knicks will be led by the duo Quentin Grimes on offense, a dynamic second-year pro that averaged 6.1 points off the bench as a rookie.
On the other side, the Warriors will send out three former first-round picks in James Wiseman, Jonathan Kuminga and Moses Moody. Moody is a player to keep an eye on here. The experience he got playing in the NBA playoffs is surely going to motivate him to earn a bigger role this fall.
I'll take a chance on a Warriors squad filled with talent to pull off an upset victory (+116).
