The Westchester Knicks acquired former Temple standout Quinton Rose, after Myles Powell left the G League Orlando Bubble.
Powell joined the Milwaukee Bucks on a two-way contract with Rose taking his spot in the Knicks’ G League team roster.
The 6-foot-8 Rose went undrafted in the 2020 NBA Draft but signed an Exhibit 10 deal with the Sacramento Kings. He entered the Available Player Pool after Sacramento’s G League affiliate, Stockton Kings, begged off from participating in the condensed season.
Rose finished his Temple run with 14.4 points, 2.5 assists, 4.3 rebounds, and 1.8 steals through 129 games with 102 starts. His 1,860 amassed points rank sixth all-time in the Owls’ history. Rose also racked up 231 steals throughout his four-year stay at Temple that stands as seventh all-time in the program history.
The Knicks, however, will only have one game left after a narrow 122-120 loss to Agua Caliente Clippers. Their eighth loss in 14 games eliminated them from playoff contention.
Only the top eight teams will advance in the single-elimination playoffs.
The Knicks will wrap up their G League season against the league-leading Erie Bayhawks (11-3) at 3:30 p.m. Friday.
