The tiny table makes it official; the New York Knicks have signed former Bucks forward Damien Inglis.

The 21-year-old Inglis will likely go directly to the Knicks’ D-League affiliate in Westchester, per Ian Begley:

Inglis, the 31st overall pick in the 2014 draft, is no stranger to Westchester, having played 13 games with the W-Knicks in 2015-16. He also played 30 games with Milwaukee, who sent him to Westchester for seasoning because they lacked a D-League affiliate of their own. The Bucks released Inglis on June 29.

Perhaps Inglis enjoyed his time with the Westchester organization, or maybe he preferred signing on now over entering the D-League draft. Either way, the Knicks seemed keen on renewing their relationship with the athletic forward who averaged 9.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.7 assists 1.4 steals in 21.4 minutes per game with the Double-U-Bockers. Inglis can assume the role of Thanasis Antetokounmpo, who left Westchester for Andorra in the offseason.

Inglis is the second player in NBA history to hail from French Guiana. The other: Kevin Seraphin. It all fits!
