In a shocking move, the Knicks have waived the rights to forward Troy Williams.
Williams was an energy spark off the bench in Summer League play, averaging 11 points (46% FG), 4 rebounds and 1 steal on 20 minutes per night.
Williams joined the Knicks in February via a 10-day contract. He signed a multi-year deal in March and played 17 games before a broken jaw ended his season. He averaged 6 points a game in 17 minutes
Fizdale and company must have immense confidence in our frontcourt because I was sure Williams would be back. In Summer League, he was arguably our most consistent bench player and always picked up the tempo when he was on the floor. If I had to guess, Williams’ lack of shooting probably made him a liability.
