Lost in all the free agent signings for the Knicks’ regular 15-man roster this past weekend were two players signed to two-way deals. These are new Knicks, per se — both players were on the Knicks’ roster since the summer.

We begin with point guard Jared Harper, who was offered the team’s first two-way deal.

Harper is an undersized, speedy point guard from Auburn who got some burn with the Suns’ G League team last season. The Knicks picked him up during the summer and he was with the team for their September training camp.

The second two-way bro is former Net Theo Pinson, whom the Knicks added to the 15-man this past summer when they released Allonzo Trier.

Ah yes, Berman loves to remind us when a player is repped by CAA. Anyway, Pinson is more of a wing, but he’s also not very good. But the Knicks have signed him twice, so maybe they see something.

The rules for two-way players will be different this upcoming season. Each player can be on the roster for up to 50 games and unlimited practices. Also, we have no idea if there will even be a G League season this year. The club seems extremely deep at the guard position, so perhaps both players are there for practice purposes.
