A second round draft pick of the New York Knicks in the 2021 NBA Draft, McBride has primarily sat the bench at Madison Square Garden due to the team’s deep guard rotation.

To date, while McBride has played in only two NBA games, he is 0-for-4 from the field. He has played a total of five minutes, and only really has a block to show for it.

It’s that lack of playing time that resulted in the Knicks sending him to the G-League. Knicks head coach Tom Thibodeau has expressed positivity about McBride, and sees a bright future for the former West Virginia guard.
