The New York Knicks have signed former Fresno State guard Paul Watson, the team announced Friday.
The Knicks have been signing (and waiving) players for their camp roster at a rapid pace lately, all to fill out their roster with the Westchester Knicks of the G-League.
Watson played for Westchester last season, averaging 6.4 points in the G-League. He did not get drafted in 2017.
The Knicks already had Watson’s returning NBAGL rights, so signing him doesn’t change that — it does give the club a chance to give him a bonus worth up to $50K via the Exhibit 10 clause if he rejoins the Westchester Knicks and spends at least two months with the club this season,” Luke Adams of HoopsRumors explained. “That bonus won’t count against New York’s NBA salary cap.”
Watson is likely to be waived shortly after signing, much like the Knicks did with John Jenkins, Tyrius Walker and Billy Garrett earlier this week.
