With their final roster spot, the Knicks inked the 25-year-old 6’8 shooter Svi Mykhailiuk to a partially-guaranteed minimum contract.
The New York Knicks have signed Svi Mykhailiuk to a partially guaranteed one-year deal, per Shams Charania of The Athletic. The deal is a one-year minimum contract, with $50,000 guaranteed, according to a report by The Athletic’s Fred Katz.
Mykhailiuk, a 6’8″ guard/forward, most recently played with the Toronto Raptors where he averaged just 6.6 points per game along with 1.4 assists and 1.8 rebounds. He is best known for his sharpshooting, averaging as high as 43.8% percent from three-point range with the Oklahoma City Thunder during the 2020-21 season after playing 30 games with them. The 25-year-old is also coming off a five-game Eurobasket run where he averaged 17.0 points and 2.8 assists while recording a tournament-high 2.2 steals per game.
The Knicks now have a 20-man training camp roster heading into the end of September with this signing, their most recent re-signing of Ryan Archidiacono, and their signing of DaQuan Jeffries. It remains unclear whether the team plans any further moves, but with this addition, it seems like New York may be done with any significant moves heading into October and their preseason schedule.
