Rose, currently dealing with knee injury, is averaging 14 points off the bench this year for the Pistons and will likely remain a bench in New York. This does seem like it might stunt Immanuel Quickley’s minutes which is a bummer for the rookie. Smith meanwhile has become a complete afterthought in New York after 15 points in Dallas his rookie year.
