The odds are always against a Division II product getting a real look at training camp, but point guard Amir Hinton may have a real chance with the Knicks this year.
Signed to an Exhibit 10 contract, Hinton led all of college basketball in scoring at Division II Shaw University with 29.4 points per game. Though the 22-year-old will likely wind up with the Westchester Knicks with his $50,000 guarantee, the ultimate long shot’s future bears watching. David Fizdale’s mission is to run more this season, and Hinton thrives in transition. It’s no secret the Knicks have signed a slew of guys with one-year deals who could be peddled at the trade deadline for draft picks, opening up roster spots, so Hilton is a name to keep an eye on as the season progresses.
