Marc Berman

Since preseason, he has been the Mr. Everywhere — his athleticism, shot-making and fast-break prowess providing the jolt off the Knicks bench that J.R. Smith was once supposed to provide.

Derrick Williams has gone from 2011 draft bust to an extremely early candidate for either Most Improved Player or Sixth Man of the Year. At least Phil Jackson, Williams’ biggest supporter, can dream. The Zen Master was pounded – including in these quarters – for signing Williams to a two-year, $10 million, giving him a player opt-out after one season. In July, it seemed like a reach, a desperate attempt to spend his cap space. And if Williams did blossom, he’d be tough to re-sign and still have max cap room for a Kevin Durant.

And many cynics predicted Williams’ preseason prowess was a fluke, that he’ll show his true dreadlocks once the regular season dawns. Instead, Williams’ run continued in the Knicks’ 122-97 opening-night win over the Bucks. He got going midway through the first quarter as the reserve combo forward turned the game around. Indeed, the Knicks’ speedy second unit changed the game’s complexion after the Bucks took an 11-4 lead.

Williams notched 15 first-half points, igniting a 15-0 run, on the way to a team-high 24. Coach Derek Fisher is comfortable having Williams on the floor without Carmelo Anthony, sensing he can carry the offense with his ability to score in so many different ways, including the 3-point shot.

Where have you been the last four years, D-Will? Some thought the second overall pick of the Timberwolves out of Arizona should’ve gone over No. 1 selection Kyrie Irving, who was injured most of his freshman year at Duke.

“I don’t know what he hasn’t done [in the past], but I think he’s just playing the game, trusting his instincts, even though he’s still learning a lot of new things on how to play,’’ Fisher said. “I don’t think he’s overthinking. He’s making plays in front of him, shooting the ball well. It’s early. He had a really good preseason and was really good [Wednesday night]. He’ll have ups and downs, and it’s how he respond when the shots aren’t going in like they were.’’

For his part, Williams, whom scouts have pegged as a player with a low basketball IQ, says he still doesn’t know the triangle back and forth. It hasn’t stopped him.

“I still don’t know all the plays — some guys are still telling me go here, go there,’’ Williams said in the visitor’s locker room of Milwaukee’s Bradley Center. “I’m playing off of instinct, knowing the game and having the IQ of knowing when to roll, knowing when to pop, spacing the floor and getting guys open for shots.’’

So far, so great.

• The Knicks other rookie, point guard Jerian Grant, had a heady night leading the lively second unit. (The bench scored 73 points). Grant’s consistent preseason has been much overlooked because of the attention on 7-foot-3 top pick Kristaps Porzingis.

Plus, Grant is low-key, soft spoken and hardly a quote machine. But he can run an offense. The Notre Dame product, and nephew of Horace Grant, made one lovely pull-up fallaway from the right side and finished with 10 points, five a.ssists, no turnovers in 24 minutes – the perfect change-of-pace point guard backup for Jose Calderon. Grant’s value is underscored by the struggles of Tim Hardaway Jr., who was inactive for Atlanta’s season opener, but should suit up Thursday night at MSG. Jackson shipped out Hardaway for the rights to Grant as Fisher didn’t deem him a triangle player.

• Greg Monroe, the Bucks’ free-agent coup, looked solid in his Milwaukee debut, scoring 22 points with 14 rebounds. But Monroe is reputed for his lax defense, and his presence coincided with one of the worst defensive performances in the Jason Kidd Era. The Bucks allowed more than 120 points just once last season. They allowed the Knicks 50 points in the paint on Wednesday night. Still, the crafty lefty center can score in a lot of ways and devours offensive boards. Knicks starting center Robin Lopez, Jackson’s consolation prize, was his unflashy self – eight points, two rebounds, two blocks in 19 minutes.

• Guard Langston Galloway was the lone treasure to emerge from last season’s wreckage. Fisher absolutely adores Galloway, the undrafted combo guard out of St. Joseph’s. After a ho-hum Summer League in which he hurt his finger, Galloway looked more polished with his stroke and he drained 4 of 6 3-pointers (16 points total, zero turnovers), k!lling any Bucks’ second-half momentum.

Sweet... The Lord was looking out for Cleanthony on that one! Things could've been much worse... Can't wait til he comes back healthy, bet he'll be super motivated too

And we could use some back court competition in practice to help keep Jerian & Gallo on their toes... always like Toure, he was just inconsistent. Worth a 10 day contract
