A day after signing with the Knicks, former DePaul guard Billy Garrett has been waived, the team announced today (via Twitter). New York has been turning over the 20th spot on its roster frequently within the last week, with Garrett’s brief stint as a Knick serving as the latest example.
Garrett was part of New York’s Summer League team this year after playing for the organization’s G League affiliate in Westchester last season. The 23-year-old appeared in 50 G League games in 2017/18, posting 11.9 PPG, 2.7 RPG, and 2.5 APG in 27.2 minutes per contest.
The Knicks have signed and waived a handful of players in recent days, securing those players’ G League rights for the upcoming season. Tyrius Walker and John Jenkins were among the others who were cut shortly after joining the roster.
New York now has an open spot on its 20-man preseason roster. At some point, the club is expected to use that opening to sign former Columbia forward Jeff Coby, another candidate to play for the Westchester Knicks in 2018/19. Coby reportedly reached an agreement with the Knicks last month.
