Knicks to sign Skal Labissiere to G League deal

The Knicks continue to fill out their roster, this time with their G League team, as SNY’s Ian Begley has confirmed that the team will sign G/F James Young and F/C Skal Labissiere to G League contracts. Like Myles Powell and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist’s deals with the Knicks, Labissiere’s is an Exhibit 10 contract. The Knicks will need to waive someone in order for Labissiere to join on that deal. Young was the 17th overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft by the Boston Celtics, where he played for three seasons. The Kentucky product also played six games with the Philadelphia 76ers in 2018, and has most recently been playing in Israel for Maccabi Haifa, where he was the top scorer in the Israeli Premier League.

How have you been preparing for the 2019 NBA draft? Marial Shayok: When the season ended, I started working out in Los Angeles with Chris Johnson. The workouts have been great. We start pretty early and do our strength and conditioning with Travelle Gaines. It’s been a good amount of guys in the gym. Andrew Nembhard, the point guard from Florida, was out there with us and Cameron Johnson and Charles Bassey before he decided to return to Western Kentucky. There have been some pros, too, like James Young and a few others as well. I’m taking it one day at a time. I’m trying to win each day, get the most of each day and it will result in landing on an NBA roster and being a key part to the team.
