Cleanthony signed -
The Knicks have signed draft pick Cleanthony Early to a contract, the team announced.
Early, 6-8, 219-pounds, was selected by New York in second round (34th overall) of the 2014 NBA Draft following his senior season at Wichita State University.
The Bronx, NY-native led the Shockers to an undefeated regular season (34-0), with averages of 16.4 points on 48.6-percent shooting and 5.9 rebounds. He averaged 11.5 points and 4.8 rebounds, over 27.9 minutes, in four games for New York’s entry in the 2014 NBA Summer League at Las Vegas, NV.
Happy we got him, but there goes another roster spot. I hear the Heat are after Murry... I like this kid too, but we have that glut of guards. Do you think we keep foul-prone Tyler? Not crazy about him, even tho we need forwards and he comes fairly cheap. Thoughts?
