Knicks Release Myles Powell

After signing him earlier in the week, the Knicks have waived guard Myles Powell, the team announced today (via Twitter).

Powell, a 6’2″ guard who went undrafted out of Seton Hall in 2020, averaged 17.8 PPG, 3.8 APG, and 3.4 RPG in 13 games (28.1 MPG) for the Westchester Knicks during the abridged 2020/21 season, posting an impressive shooting line of .448/.446/.818 for New York’s G League affiliate.

As Fred Katz of The Athletic confirms (via Twitter), the Knicks signed Powell to an Exhibit 10 contract this week with an eye toward having him return to Westchester for the 2021/22 season. The team already has Powell’s NBAGL returning rights, but completing an Exhibit 10 deal will allow him to receive a $50K bonus, assuming he spends at least 60 days with New York’s G League team.

The Knicks now have 19 players under contract, including 14 on guaranteed deals and one on a two-way pact.
