Today, the New York Knicks have announced the signings of Oscar Bellfield, Henry Sims, John Shurna and Mychel Thompson, who all worked out for the team in the spring. Starting October 2nd, these guys will be fighting with Chris Smith, Chris Copeland, and probably a few more invitees, for one or two roster spots. We looked at the John Shurna signing this morning, but I’ll quickly give you guys a little background on the others.
Mychel Thompson, the brother of Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson, played for the Cleveland Cavaliers sporadically last year, prior to joining the Knicks’ summer league squad in Vegas. He played 20 minutes a game and averaged 5.6 points and 3.5 rebounds a contest in Vegas. He’s 6’6″ and went to Pepperdine University.
Don’t expect to see all these guys on the floor come November, but they will get a shot to try and impress the Knicks’ personnel. Good luck, fellas!
