Knicks' rookie Kevin Knox has been named All Summer League first team.

This is obvious given the club's decision to waive him, but the sense you get on Troy Williams is that the Knicks didn't see a significant role for him going forward. Waiving Williams gets the Knicks to 15 NBA contracts and gives Williams, 23, a chance to sign with another team before training camp.

Troy Williams' salary wasn't fully guaranteed. A portion ($100,000) would have been guaranteed on Aug. 1. Another portion ($100,000) would have been guaranteed if Williams made the Opening Night roster.

Surprisingly, the Knicks announce they've waived Troy Williams. They had to waive or trade a player before Opening Night to satisfy NBA roster rules. This brings them to 15 players under NBA contracts. Williams seemed to play well at times in Summer League.

Don't know what's next for Morehouse's Tyrius Walker, but the Division II standout took advantage of his opportunity today. He had 16 points (2-for-3 3-pt) 5 steals, 6 assists, 5 rebounds in a 19-point NYK win. Damyean Dotson added 15 pts (3-for-4 3-pt), 6 rebs, 5 assists after an uneven start to Summer League.

Another impressive afternoon from Mitchell Robinson: the second-round pick has 14 points (7-for-13 shooting), 12 rebounds (7 offensive) and 5 blocks in 19 minutes as the Knicks lead New Orleans by 16 with 2:30 to play in their Summer League finale.

Damyean Dotson, the Knicks' 2017 second-round pick, has scored seven straight to start the second half and has 12 points and four assists so far. He seems to have found his rhythm after an uneven start to Summer League.

Daniel Ochefu with 12 points on 5-for-6 shooting in the first half. Wouldn't be surprised if he's impressed some of the dozens of international scouts and coaches in attendance at Summer League with that spurt.

Seems like the Knicks wanted to rest Kevin Knox and Allonzo Trier today, which is understandable. I'm guessing that the organization hoped to see more from Frank Ntilikina, who missed three of the Knicks' five Summer League games due to injury.

Solid start for Knicks Summer League guard Tyrius Walker so far. He has five points, two rebounds, an assist and a steal in 7 minutes. Walker starred at Division II Morehouse and impressed Morehouse's all-time leading scorer Harold Ellis, who is also the Knicks' Director of Player Personnel.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Starting for the Knicks today vs. New Orleans: Tyrius Walker, Damyean Dotson, Mitchell Robinson, Paul Watson and Isaiah Hicks. Frank Ntilikina will miss his third Summer League game after playing in the first two, per the NY Post. Luke Kornet will sit due a sprained ankle after playing one Summer League game. Kevin Knox and Allonzo Trier will also sit.

Knicks scout Clarence Gaines Jr., who was a close adviser of ex-NYK President Phil Jackson, will not be back with the organization next season, league sources confirmed. Gaines Jr. was hired by Jackson in 2014 and served under Jackson as a Vice President of Player Personnel. His role shifted to that of a scout this season after Jackson was fired. Jackson said Gaines was instrumental in convincing him to draft Kristaps Porzingis in 2015. Many people in the organization saw Gaines and Jackson's most trusted adviser during his tenure as president, which included three 50-loss seasons and external turmoil. It is unclear exactly why Gaines won't return, though it's worth noting he did not have strong ties to GM Scott Perry, who has made several new additions to the front office. Also, his contract, which was agreed to under Jackson, was up after the 2017-18 season. Several people in the organization speculated that Gaines would not remain with the Knicks after this season once Perry and Mills began to shape the front office. Gaines' status with the Knicks was first reported by The Athletic.

On Friday July 20, the foundation will host a 3-on-3 tournament. Players in Grades 7-12 are eligible for the camp and tournament.

Knicks' second-round pick Mitchell Robinson continues to impress in Summer League. He had 17 points on 8-for-10 shooting, 12 rebounds (7 offensive), 6 blocks & 3 steals in NYK's loss to Boston. The Knicks close out the Summer League on Friday against New Orleans at 4:30 EST.

Kevin Knox finds Mitchell Robinson for an alleyoop in tight space, one of several plays that show why the organization feels good about their 2018 NBA Draft thus far.

Kevin Knox hasn't had a strong shooting afternoon thus far but Mitchell Robinson has continued his strong play against Boston. The Knicks' second-round pick has 8 points, 8 rebounds and 5 blocks midway through the third quarter.
