Patrick Ewing Jr. has been waived by the Knicks - the second time in three years he did not make the team out of training camp. Ewing was outplayed by Shawne Williams, who stays as the 15th man.
Williams, whose had multiple drug arrests, was drafted by Donnie Walsh at Indiana four years ago and is the better offensive player and outside shooter. He shot 57 percent in preseason in 4.8 minutes per game. Ewing is the better defender and had a $100,000 guarantee. Williams hit both of his shots in the preseason finale in Montreal Friday, scoring seven points.
Would rather have PEII on the team. Neither will get significant minutes. Ewing Jr. plays good D and he brings excitement to the Garden.
Wish him luck in the D-League or overseas, hope he gets a chance from another NBA team but I doubt it.
Unfortunately his game is fit for the NBA, rather than Europe. Seriously, what does he have to work on? I mean hes a great athlete, hes a hustle player, was a Big East DPOY, can guard the 3 or 4, has adequate length, etc. You have flat out scrubs like Ian Mahimni, Brian Cardinal, Brian Scalbrine, Jawad Williams, etc still cashing NBA checks for being worthless.
I was really hoping for him to stick on this team.
