The Knicks announced they have waived F Troy Williams on Monday. Williams had just completed the Summer League with New York in Las Vegas.

Had to waive or trade a player to satisfy roster rules, it was Williams who got the boot. The 6-foot-7 forward came to the Knicks last year on a 10-day contract. He would sign yet another one as they were impressed with his play.

The 23-year-old played in 17 games with the Knicks, averaging 7.5 points over 17.1 minutes per game.

Looking to improve on his rookie season, Knicks PG Frank Ntilikina is back in New York, and ready to get to work with new head coach David Fizdale.

Jake Brown | Twitter | Accountability. Accountability. Accountability. That is something David Fizdale is ready to hammer down. And It's something that Jeff Hornacek failed to do in his two forgettable seasons coaching the Knicks.

According to Knicks president Steve Mills and GM Scott Perry, current NBA players, coaches, and executives all spoke highly of Fizdale, calling him someone who holds people accountable. That attribute, mixed with being a "tireless worker" and an "innovative basketball mind," all add up to what the Knicks have been missing.

Also, a high character head coach is something the Knicks badly needed. Fizdale fills that void. Nobody used the words "high character" when speaking about Hornacek. The 43-year-old Fizdale is a dozen years younger and can get into the ears of these players. If someone is playing poorly, Fizdale will sit them...
