The expectation last month was that the Knicks would leave one two-way deal open for training camp. If that's still the case, Jamel Artis, Nigel Hayes and Xavier Rathan-Mayes will be among those players competing for it. Once Artis and Hayes sign, the Knicks will have 18 players under contract, 14 of which are on guaranteed contracts. Teams can carry 20 players under contract in the offseason and 17 (including 2 two-way players) during the season.
