Knicks Assistant GM gives a star from his alma-mater a chance

[Knicks Director of Player Personnel, Harold Ellis] dispatched a team scout to watch Tyrius Walker in January, and the point guard dropped 47 points. The Cavaliers and Kings had come to watch him in practice, but only the Knicks brought him in for a pre-draft workout. When Walker went undrafted, the Knicks signed him to their Summer League roster.

On the first day of practice this week, Ellis walked into the Thomas & Mack Center gym and found Walker wearing No. 30. He didn’t know whether it was a coincidence or intentional. He had worn that number at Morehouse before it was retired. Now, he’ll watch Walker play for the organization he works for, linking two Morehouse greats for at least the next week.
