“The deal calls for Jenkins to be signed for the rest of this season, and 2019-20 is non-guaranteed but has an early trigger date,” Berman reported. “Jenkins was signed to a 10-day contract last week and played in two games, including a large role in the Knicks’ streak-busting victory in Atlanta on Thursday.”

Jenkins had been playing on a 10-day deal with the Washington Wizards, appearing in four games and averaging 1.8 points.
Before that, he was tearing it up for the Knicks’ G-League affiliate in Westchester, scoring 24.7 points and hitting 43 percent on 3-pointers.
Jenkins is 6-foot-4 and was drafted by the Atlanta Hawks with the No. 23 overall pick in 2013. He has also spent time with the Dallas Mavericks and Phoenix Suns.
