One of the biggest revelations in Knicks‘ preseason has been rookie Willy Hernangomez, who has displayed an impressive package of skills, awareness and agility for a center.

Following Saturday’s double-double performance (12 points, 12 rebounds) from Hernangomez in a loss to the Celtics, Carmelo Anthony set the bar at an All-Star level, as mentioned on New York Daily News.

“I like the Big Baby. He’s a guy who can score, he can pass, he can play D. He can do it all,” Anthony said. “I try to not make comparisons but I see a lot of Marc Gasol in him. That’s a great sign because Marc is a great player. So for him to have the skills knowing that he has at his age, it’s something special.”

Hernangomez has acquitted himself to serve as backup center behind Joakim Noah.
