Oops. I forgot to mention this amid the flurry of front office press conferences and Jimmy Butler rumors, but the Knicks have signed Tyrius Walker to an Exhibit 10 contract for training camp.
Tyrius Walker, who played well for the Knicks in Summer League, has signed a contract with the club, per his agency. https://t.co/CAsusA9E3m— Ian Begley (@IanBegley) September 19, 2018
Who is Tyrius Walker? The 6’1” guard went undrafted out of Division II Morehouse College, and played for the Knicks in Summer League. Walker only saw three games worth of action in Vegas, but averaged a solid 6.3 points, 2.0 assists, 1.7 rebounds and 1.7 steals in 11.2 minutes per game.
And what is an Exhibit 10 contract? It is a preseason deal that allows the team the right to convert it into a two-way deal if they so wish. The Knicks already have Allonzo Trier and Isaiah Hicks on two-way deals, but Walker could also sign on with their Westchester G League affiliate, netting himself a cool $50,000 in the process.
The Knicks now have the maximum 20 players under contract for training camp.
