M.J. Walker Signs With Knicks

The Knicks filled the final spot on their preseason roster by signing free agent shooting guard M.J. Walker, the team announced (via Twitter).

Walker, 24, saw limited playing time in two games last season after joining the Suns in December on a 10-day contract via the hardship exception. He spent most of the season as an affiliate player with the G League’s Westchester Knicks, averaging 10.7 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 26 games.

Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed, but Walker signed an Exhibit 10 contract with New York last summer after going undrafted out of Florida State. He appears likely to wind up with Westchester for another season.

Earlier tonight, the Knicks announced the signing of former Temple guard Quinton Rose.
