The New York Knicks will keep the Troy Williams experiment going as they announced Saturday the 23-year-old signed another 10-day contract with the team.
The New York Knicks are bringing back forward Troy Williams. At least for another 10 days. The team announced Saturday that they’ve signed Williams to a second 10-day contract.
There’s no option for a third 10-day deal. At the end of this one, New York will need to decide if they want Williams for the rest of the season. They have a roster spot available, and right now, the versatile swingman is the favorite to fill it.
It makes perfect sense that the Knicks would want Williams to stay in the fold. He’s outperformed expectations during his short stint with the team. In just four games, the former Indiana Hoosier is averaging 8.0 points and 2.5 rebounds in 12.5 minutes.
New York picked up Williams without much fanfare on Feb. 21 after he was waived by the Houston Rockets to make room for Joe Johnson. Williams, 23, wasn’t the right fit for the championship-minded Rockets but he fits right into the Knicks’ plans.
A former top high-school recruit who went undrafted after a solid college career is hungry to make a name for himself. What better place to do it than with the New York Knicks?
