Tyrius Walker’s summer has him in position to make an NBA impact in the fall.
The former Morehouse star and SIAC Player of The Year has signed deal with the New York Knicks to appear on its training camp roster, according to his agent and confirmed by ESPN.
Walker signed an Exhibit 10 deal. Players with Exhibit 10 deals receive up to a $50,000 bonus if he signs with the organization’s G League team, but if he’s waived by the parent club. Exhibit 10 players can also turn into two-way contracts but by the start of the regular season. The Westchester Knicks are the Knicks G League team.
Walker had a stellar career at Morehouse and an awesome senior season in which he averaged nearly 23 points per game and led Morehouse to D2 playoff appearance.
