Leon Rose favorite Theo Pinson re-signs with Knicks
Pinson is known for his wingspan and defense. He played 33 games last season for the Brooklyn Nets before the Orlando restart. The 25-year-old shooting guard is considered a good locker-room presence.
It should be noted the 6-foot-5 former North Carolina guard is represented by Creative Artists Agency – which president Leon Rose formerly ran. According to a source, Rose is a big fan of Pinson’s and his first move as Knicks president was claiming Pinson off waivers and cutting Allonzo Trier to make room in late June.
The two-way contracts have gained more importance this pandemic season in a redone CBA. Two-way players can now participate in 50 regular-season games with no limits on practice time. In the past, two-way players could only be with the NBA team for 45 days.
However, with no standard G League season on tap, as first reported by The Post, the two-way players are essentially an extension of the 15-man roster. Point guard Jared Harper is their other two-way player.
The Knicks opened up a two-way slot for Pinson when last week they waived shot-blocking power forward Kenny Wooten.
It was believed newly signed undrafted free-agent guard Myles Powell would vie to become the two-way guy in training camp, but he now will have to outplay Pinson. Powell signed an Exhibit 10 deal that guarantees him $50,000 if he’s cut.
The Knicks traded away the 33rd pick in the draft on Thursday because they felt they didn’t want to waste a roster spot on any of the prospects left on the board despite having a two-way hole open.
The Knicks still have one roster spot left on the 15-man roster and $25 million left in cap space, factoring in either Elfrid Payton or Nerlens Noel taking the room exception.
