Knicks Sign Isaiah Hicks to a Two-Way Deal

The Knicks have filled out their second two-way contract spot by signing Hicks.

 

After signing Luke Kornet to a two-way contract on July 3, the New York Knicks have filled out their second two-way contract spot by signing former University of North Carolina (UNC) power forward Isaiah Hicks to a two-way contract. The Vertical’s Shams Charania was first on the report:

 

 

Hicks, a 6’9″ Forward, was signed to the Charlotte Hornets training camp roster but was a long shot to make the team. Failing to appear in a single game, Hicks was subsequently cut, leading to Knicks General Manager Scott Perry picking him up on October 19.

Hicks played Summer League this past offseason for the Los Angeles Clippers as well, failing to garner a contract.

Hicks played four years at UNC, averaging 7.4 points per game and 3.6 rebounds per game while shooting 57.1 percent from the field and 72.5 percent from the free-throw line. Hicks averaged 16.2 minutes per game during his four years of college.

Overall, Hicks is slightly undersized and likely will not see the floor for the Knicks this season, but could develop into a solid rotational player with time in the G League.
