Knicks Sign Free Agent Forward to Camp Contract

The New York Knicks are continuing to fine-tune their roster ahead of training camp next week. They've announced that they've signed free agent forward Nuni Omot to a camp contract. 

The athletic 6'9", 200 pound Sudanese product has been a literal globetrotter in his career thus far, playing in North Macedonia, the Netherlands, Turkey, Poland, Germany and Puerto Rico, as well as the G League in North America.

His last stop was Puerto Rico, with Leones de Ponce, where he averaged 15 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 2.3 assists in 27 games last season.

The Knicks now have a full 20-man camp roster. 

To that end, the Knicks also went ahead and waived two players they signed earlier this week, Quinton Rose and MJ Walker, with the likely indication that they expect them both to play for the G League Westchester Knicks this season. 

The sign-and-waive maneuver has been used by many teams for Exhibit 10 signees in order to ensure they're eligible for $50,000 bonuses if they spend at least 60 days on the G League roster.
