Perry said Frank Ntilikina already has put on some weight since the end of the season. The Post reported Ntilikina has been in Paris working out at a famed sports performance facility, INSEP, and the Knicks dispatched one of their trainers to work with him.
“We had someone who already went over to see him,’’ Perry said, referring to trainer Anthony Goenaga. “He’s doing well. He’s continuing to get stronger and adding a little weight. We expect him to be back in New York in a week or so. He’s committed. That’s the one thing he told us in our exit meeting. He’s gone through the entire season as a rookie. Now he’s got a little feel on what the NBA is truly like. He’s a real reflective young man. He knows what he really has to work on and he’s not hearing it just from us. He’s driven to come back a better basketball player.”
