June 26, 7:46 PM:
The Knicks added former Eastern Michigan guard Tim Bond to their Summer League roster, the school announced.
Bond, the 2018 Mid-American Conference Defensive Player of the Year, averaged 9.2 poinnts, 4.9 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2.4 steals in 35 games as a senior in the 2017-18 season for the Eagles.
He spent last season with the Rockets' G-League affiliate in Rio Grande Valley, averaging 5.7 points, 3.0 rebounds and 3.2 assists in four games.

The Knicks have added another defensive big man to their Summer League roster on Tuesday, with Oregon PF Kenny Wooten Jr. joining the team. He announced his decision on Twitter, simply tweeting out "New York Knicks."
Wooten may have averaged just 6.3 points last season, but that doesn't seem to be why the Knicks have some interest in him. His 2.6 blocks per game and 2.2 blocks per game in his freshman and sophomore seasons respectively showcase his knack for protecting the rim. He was named to the Pac 12 First-Team All-Defense in those seasons as well.
