Preseason basketball may have already begun, but that doesn’t mean the New York Knicks are finished wheeling and dealing around the fringes of their roster.

The front office started off Tuesday by waiving guard Tyrius Walker, who played for the Knicks in Monday night’s win over the Wizards. The Morehouse College alum scored 1 points and committed 2 turnovers in the 124-121 victory.

The Knicks wasted no time in signing guard John Jenkins to replace Walker.

Jenkins isn’t exactly a young buck — he was chosen 23rd overall in the 2012 draft, and last played in the NBA in 2016-17. He impressed the club with his performance for the Blazers in Summer League, according to Marc Berman. The Blazers won the Summer League title, so we know Jenkins has that championship experience.

Finally, the Knicks capped off their day by signing Morgan State forward Phillip Carr to play for their Westchester G League affiliate. Carr announced the signing on his own Twitter account.

Welcome to the (W-)Knicks, fellas!
