Knicks sign former New York HS star Moses Brown to a two-way contract
New York Knicks It said Bringing back former Archbishop Molloy, high school star Moses Brown, on a bilateral contract.
The 7-foot-2 Brown and current Orlando Magic guard Cole Anthony made one of the best high school duos during his senior year, earning MVP honors en route to becoming Molloy’s first McDonald’s All-American since Kenny Anderson in 1989.
But the success he achieved in high school eluded him in the NBA.
A one-time draftee, Brown left UCLA but went undrafted in 2019. He has since bounced around five NBA teams and three G-League teams.
Brown appeared in 34 games this season with the Los Angeles Clippers while on a dual contract, averaging 4.6 points and 4.5 rebounds in 8.5 minutes. Not retained after exhaustion of the 50 games allowed for two-way players to be in the active squad.
The Browns take over the spot vacated by DaQuan Jeffries, who signed a 10-day contract extension with the Knicks last Sunday. The New York-born player is not expected to be part of the Knicks’ rotation but will feature in their G League team in Westchester.
Meanwhile, Trevor Kells is back in Westchester following the expiration of his 10-day contract with the Knicks. Keels, the Knicks’ second-round pick in the last draft, scored 11 points in 29 minutes during a 121-104 loss to the Stockton Kings last Tuesday.
Keels is now a free agent and can be picked up by any team.
