Knicks Sign Svi Mykhailiuk To One-Year Deal

8:43pm: The Knicks have officially signed Mykhailiuk, the team announced on social media. He received a one-year, minimum deal with only $50K guaranteed, Fred Katz of The Athletic tweets.

12:59pm: Free agent swingman Svi Mykhailiuk is signing a one-year, partially guaranteed contract with the Knicks, Mykhailiuk’s agency SIG Sports informed Shams Charania of The Athletic (Twitter link).

After being waived by the Raptors last month despite having a guaranteed salary for 2022/23, the Ukraine-born Mykhailiuk had indicated that he hoped to return to the NBA rather than pursuing a deal with a European club. That apparently included considering signing a G League contract if necessary.

Last season, the 6’7″ small forward averaged 4.6 PPG, 1.6 RPG, 0.8 APG, and 0.5 SPG across 56 games for Toronto. He posted shooting splits of .389/.306/.865. For his career, Mykhailiuk is a solid three-point shooter on volume, averaging 35.3% on 3.7 attempts.

The 25-year-old journeyman was first selected by the Lakers with the No. 47 pick after a four-year Kansas tenure in 2018. Prior to the Raptors last season, he has suited up for Los Angeles, the Pistons, and the Thunder.

New York has 13 players signed to its standard 15-man roster. Beyond Mykhailiuk’s non-guaranteed deal, the team also has DaQuan Jeffries and Ryan Arcidiacono signed to Exhibit 10 contracts, plus Feron Hunt and Trevor Keels on two-way contracts. The team also reportedly intends to sign two additional players, Jean Montero and Garrison Brooks, to Exhibit 10 deals.
