It's no secret that the New York Knicks are looking for help in their frontcourt. While they are still trying to get Kenyon Martin to accept a veteran's minimum offer and looking at other vets, they still have their eyes on finding youth that could have a future beyond the next two years. That's led to them offering the young and talented Jeremy Tyler to training camp with a chance to make the main roster.
Jeremy Tyler was a second-round pick of the Charlotte Bobcats in 2011 NBA Draft. He made his debut with the Golden State Warriors where he had 23 late-season starts during his rookie year. Last season he played sparingly until he was traded to the Atlanta Hawks. He may have resurrected his career with the New York Knicks during this summer league. His performances have impressed the franchise and Mike Woodson enough to earn himself a training camp invite.
Johan Ballow of KnicksNow.com reports Tyler has been given a training camp invite.
Earlier this week that Tyler's agent, Gabe Giordano was hoping he could secure a contract with the Knicks that would grant him an invitation to training camp. Well, the two sides were able to agree on a deal pretty quickly. It's unknown at this time how much guaranteed money Tyler has received. However, the fact is Tyler has gotten the invite.
The Knicks will hope that Tyler will be able to duplicate Chris Copeland's success from last season as a camp invitee. The only thing the Knicks would change is being able to keep Tyler around past next season. Only time will tell if Tyler will be able to make the Knicks roster but he'll definitely get the chance.Tags: Basketball, Jeremy Tyler, Kenyon Martin, NBA, New York, New York Knicks
