NBAKnicks sign Ewing Jr.
Patrick Ewing Jr. will be back in training camp with the Knicks for a second attempt to make the final roster. They signed the former Georgetown Hoya - and son of the Knicks' Hall of Fame center - to a partially guaranteed one-year contract Friday. Ewing Jr., a 6-8 forward, was in camp at the start of the 2008-09 season but was the last player cut from the NBA-maximum 15-man roster. The team opted not to buy out Stephon Marbury at the time and also kept guard Anthony Roberson. The Knicks have 14 players on full guaranteed contracts this season, which leaves one spot open. The team is expected to invite a few other free agents to camp, which opens Sept. 25 at the MSG Training Center.
Ewing Jr. played his only pro season (2008-09) in the D-League but injured his knee in March of that season and took the entire 2009-10 season off to recover after surgery. The Knicks invited him back to play for their summer league team in July and he averaged 4.8 points in 11.3 minutes per game in four games.
