Was actually surprised a team didn't take him in the second round. Hope he sticks.

6-10 months ago hw was in the loterry, but there are reasons why he wasn't in the draft, bad workouts/work rate/attitude and pretty dumb on the court. he regressed from month to month

Glad he got picked up, love seeing a player from the Wolfpack getting a shot. Hopefully he sticks. Best case scenario -- he lessens the blow of losing Copeland.

Great pick up for Knicks, adds youth athletic ability and good size I also hope he sticks I really liked that Wolfpack team with him and Brown.

This is a great example of why people should relax on thinking they can see into the future and know how each player will pan out.

After a surprisingly good 2011-2012 season, the Wolfpack were viewed as a top 5 team heading into this past season and Leslie was viewed by many as a top 10 pick (for some a top 5 pick)....And then the Wolfpack barely make the NCAA tournament and Leslie goes undrafted. lol

Rebound and at this point is more athletic than James White and plays much harder.

James White is pretty bad and won't be back on the Knicks. Back to Europe.

I wonder if this is a summer league signing...

Knick fans might not realize we have 7 guys on the roster 1 mini mle and vet minimums to use fill out the roster.

i'm thinking Josh might be a Mozgov fan. Was it not rumored that the Melo deal might not happen because the Knicks didnt wanna part ways with mozzy?
