It appears, based on several reports, that Donnie Walsh has decided to keep Anthony Roberson at the expense of fan favorite Patrick Ewing Jr.
Clearly, this move makes little sense on the surface, based on the performances of the two, Roberson couldn't hit a shot and barely played, but Walsh must feel a 6th guard makes more sense than cutting Jerome James or keeping the project in Ewing.

This may not be the last the team has seen of Ewing, there's reason to believe that Walsh has an agreement with Jr. to return to the team as soon as a roster spot opens up, which will assuredly happen throughout the course of the year.
Ewing Jr.'s not sold on the idea of joining the Knicks D-League team...yet.
"...There's been talk of Ewing Jr. possibly playing for the Knicks' D-League affiliate in Reno, Nevada.
