Ron Baker Is Native America's Next NBA Star

 

January 19, 2017



Though his sneakers make a large squeak on the hardwood, Ron Baker (Citizen Potawatomi Nation) has quietly become Indian country’s newest athlete to reach the NBA.

The New York Knicks have reportedly decided to guarantee a one-year deal and will retain Baker for the 2016-17 season.

The 23-year-old, 6-foot-3, 218-pound point guard was undrafted free agent who made the Knicks roster this season. Baker’s used to going up against the odds: he was a walk-on at Wichita State who became a Wooden Award finalist as one of the top players in the country. It was there he also led his team to an NCAA Tournament Final Four in 2013.
