As first reported by Ian Begley of ESPN, the New York Knicks have agreed to a deal with Tyrius Walker to join the team for training camp. He becomes the 20th man rostered by the Knicks for training camp which is the maximum allowed for a team.

Walker, who turns 23 on December 28, is listed at 6-1, 165 lbs. He spent four years playing his college ball at Morehouse College before he went undrafted in the 2018 NBA Draft.

Summer League

After he went undrafted, Walker agreed to play in the Summer League as a member of the Knicks.

He appeared in three games, with one start.

In 11.2 minutes per game, he finished with averages of 6.3 points, 1.7 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.7 steals, and 0.7 blocks. Walker shot 6-14 from the field (42.9 percent), 3-6 on three-point tries (50 percent), and 4-6 from the foul line (66.7 percent).

Walker's time at Morehouse

Morehouse College is a school located in Atlanta, Georgia and is in Division II's Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.

Walker's 22.8 points per game average as a senior in the 2017-18 season led the conference. His senior year, he also posted averages of 5.4 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.8 steals, and 0.3 blocks. He ended the season with shooting numbers of 218-459 from the field (47.5 percent), 56-157 from downtown (35.7 percent), and 146-182 from the charity stripe (80.8 percent).

Morehouse College went an impressive 25-3 during Walker's senior year.

His shooting percentages aren't far off from his career 45.9 percent from the field, 34.1 percent from deep, and 80.8 percent from the free throw line during his four years at Morehouse College. During his college tenure, Walker averaged 18 points, five rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.9 steals, and 0.3 blocks in 91 games.

Likely to be waived and stashed on the G-League roster

Walker has an uphill climb to making the team as the Knicks have a plethora of options (although not elite ones) at the point guard position in Trey Burke, Emmanuel Mudiay, Frank Ntilikina, and Ron Baker. Burke proved his ability to score the basket after he was called up by the Knicks last season, and Ntilikina was the eighth overall pick by New York in the 2017 NBA Draft.

Bleacher Report states that general manager Steve Mills has said that Ntilkina has added 10-15 lbs. of muscle on his somewhat slender frame during the offseason.

If the likely move occurs of Walker getting waived and heading to the G-League's Westchester Knicks, he can look towards Burke as motivation. Burke played in 26 games for Westchester last season before his call-up to the Knicks where he appeared in 36 games and averaged 12.8 points.
