New York Knicks Make Minor Roster Moves

The New York Knicks have signed center Henry Sims, forward John Shurna, swingman Mychel Thompson and guard Oscar Bellfield on Monday, according to Alex Raskin.

New York is trying to get its training camp roster ready and has done so by acquiring some players to take a look at for a few weeks.

Sims is perhaps the most likely to stick after cuts are made, considering he's a 7-footer who can rebound. A Georgetown Hoyas product, Sims played well last year in college, averaging 11.6 points and six rebounds per game.

Bellfield is a guard who played four season with the UNLV Runnin' Rebels in college. He put up solid numbers while at the program, finishing in the school's all-time top ten in 3-point shooting and assists.

Shurna played with the Northwestern Wildcats and can do one thing very well; shoot from the outside. The rookie isn't much of an inside presence, but does have the ability to stretch the defense.

Thompson has some family ties in the NBA. His brother, Klay, is currently on the Golden State Warriors after being a first-round draft pick.

Mychel Thompson played briefly for the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2011-12 before being let go.
