The Knicks have made a pair of minor roster moves, announcing in a press release that they’ve waived guard Tyler Hall and replaced him with guard Myles Powell.
Both players were members of the Westchester Knicks, New York’s G League affiliate, last season and appear likely to return to the team in 2021/22. By signing them to non-guaranteed Exhibit 10 contracts, the Knicks can give Hall and Powell bonuses worth up to $50K if they spend at least 60 days in the G League.
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 Westchester during the abridged 2020/21 season, posting an impressive shooting line of .448/.446/.818.
Hall, 24, went undrafted out of Montana State in 2019 and has spent the first two seasons of his professional career as a rotation player for Westchester. In 53 total games at the NBAGL level, the 6’5″ guard has averaged 9.5 PPG, 3.6 RPG, and 2.0 APG on .421/.411/.742 shooting in 26.1 minutes per contest. He also played for New York’s Summer League team in August.
