The dog days of summer (and the NBA offseason) have arrived. The New York Knicks, who were ready to rebuild the team, have finally formed the bulk of their roster.
With any major player movement all but over, it is time for the Knicks to look ahead to the future, focusing on the good pieces the team has in place.
One of those pieces, Bill Walker, arrived in New York much earlier than just this summer. A midseason acquisition from the Boston Celtics, Walker possesses an abundance of potential that has yet to be unleashed.
Although Walker could end up buried on the Knicks bench behind all their wingmen, he could also experience a breakout season if given the opportunity. A rare bright spot in a rather dismal season, Walker averaged nearly 12 points on 52 percent from the field after joining the Knicks.
In hopes that he will build on his success, here are five steps Walker can take to have a breakthrough season, and eventually become a household name in the NBA.
