Former Morehouse Guard Tyrius Walker to Play for New York Knicks Summer League Team


Tyrius Walker, the All-American point guard who led Morehouse to a historic 25-3 record this season, has signed a contract to play on the New York Knicks’ summer league team.

The squad opens play July 7 when they take on the Atlanta Hawks.

Walker recently had a tryout with the Knicks, where former Morehouse basketball great Harold Ellis is the director of player personnel.

Walker finished his Morehouse career with a slew of awards, including being named the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference’s Player of the Year, BOXTOROW Division II National Player of the Year, NABC All American, Division II All-South Region team, and All-District first team.

Walker led the SIAC in scoring (22.8 points per game) and steals, and was ranked in the Top 10 in 3-point shooting, free throw percentage, assists, and assist-to-turnover ratio. 

Knicks summer league games will be broadcast on ESPN networks and NBA TV.
