Knicks training camp roster likely set after latest tinkering

The Knicks training camp roster appears set after more tinkering.

On Friday, they released guards Quinton Rose and M.J. Walker, and signed forwards Nuni Omot and Garrison Brooks. It came two days after the Knicks had agreed to deal with Rose and Walker, both guards.

The 6-foot-9 Brooks, 23, appeared in two games with the Knicks during the Las Vegas Summer League while the 27-year-old Omot has played overseas in recent years.

The Knicks still own the G League rights to Rose and Walker under Exhibit 10 deals.

The duo both played for the Westchester Knicks, the team’s G-League affiliate, appearing in three games apiece for the Knicks during the Las Vegas Summer League in July.

Rose, a shooting guard who played for Temple and went undrafted in 2020, averaged 7.4 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 1.6 assists for the Westchester Knicks.

Walker, a Florida State star and also a shooting guard, averaged 10.6 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.4 assists for Westchester.

Recently, the Knicks also signed Svi Mykhailiuk — one of two Ukrainian players in the NBA — to a one-year, partially guaranteed contract and re-signed. They also re-signed Ryan Arcidiacono, who will be reuniting with Jalen Brunson who was his backcourt mate at Villanova, where the duo won a national title in the 2015-16 season.

It has been a mixed offseason for the Knicks, who signed the 26-year-old free agent Brunson to a four-year, $104 million deal on June 30, but missed out on the 26-year-old Donovan Mitchell, whom the Jazz traded to the Cavaliers on Sept. 1.

The Knicks also gave R.J. Barrett, 22, a four-year, $120 million rookie contract extension on Aug. 29.
