Billy Garrett Signs With Knicks

2:26pm: The Knicks have officially signed Garrett, the team announced today (via Twitter).

8:44am: The Knicks will sign former DePaul guard Billy Garrett to an Exhibit 10 contract, tweets Ian Begley of ESPN.

Garrett was part of New York’s summer league team this year and played for the organization’s G League affiliate in Westchester last season. He appeared in 50 G League games, posting an 11.9/2.7/2.5 line.

The Knicks have made a series of roster moves this week to secure the rights of players for Westchester, waiving Tyrius Walker, signing and waiving Phillip Carr and signing John Jenkins. They are currently at the 20-man roster limit and will have to waive somebody before adding Garrett.

The Knicks also have a reported deal with Jeff Coby, so another opening will have to be created  before his signing becomes official.
