The New York Knicks have assigned rookie G/F Cleanthony Early to the Westchester Knicks, the New York Knicks’ D-League affiliate.
Early has struggled this season, and has dealt with injuries only suiting up 15 times with averages of 4.5 points per game, 1.9 rebounds per game and 0.7 assists per game on 37% shooting from both the field and behind the three point line.
The change should be good for Early, who has struggled to find a spot in Derek Fisher’s rotation. The rookie out of Wichita State did show promise in a 16 point, 6 rebound performance against the Houston Rockets on January 8.
Early is expected to suit up tonight (January 30) against the Sioux Falls Skyforce.
