Knicks Sign DaQuan Jeffries To Camp Deal

SEPTEMBER 15: The Knicks have officially signed Jeffries, the team announced today in a press release.

SEPTEMBER 14: The Knicks are signing free agent swingman DaQuan Jeffries to a training camp contract, sources tell Shams Charania of The Athletic (Twitter link). Jeffries will receive an Exhibit 10 deal, according to Marc Berman of The New York Post (Twitter link).

Jeffries, 25, spent most of his first two NBA seasons with the Kings after going undrafted out of Tulsa in 2019. He spent time near the end of the 2020/21 season with the Rockets, then had a brief stint with the Grizzlies in ’21/22. In total, he has averaged 3.8 PPG and 1.9 RPG in 47 appearances (13.7 MPG) for Sacramento, Houston, and Memphis.

Jeffries has had a larger role at the G League level since going pro, recording averages of 15.7 PPG and 5.8 RPG on .469/.342/.778 shooting in 43 games (29.0 MPG) for the Stockton Kings and College Park Skyhawks.

Jeffries, who has also represented Team USA in several World Cup qualifying games over the last year, played for the Knicks’ Summer League team in Las Vegas this July.

The Knicks currently have 15 players officially under contract — 13 on guaranteed standard deals and a pair on two-way pacts. Jean Montero and Garrison Brooks have also reportedly agreed to Exhibit 10 contracts.

While it’s unclear what New York’s plans are for Jeffries, it’s possible he could claim one of the two open spots on the team’s projected 15-man regular season roster if he has a strong camp and preseason.
