Former Seton Hall star Myles Powell has found his way back to New York.

On Friday, the Knicks announced that they had converted Jared Harper’s two-way contract into a 10-day contract to make a spot for Powell.

The undrafted Powell took Harper’s previous spot as one of the Knicks’ two-way players.

Powell was recently dropped by the Milwaukee Bucks, who signed him to a two-way deal after his solid G League campaign with the Westchester Knicks.

The Trenton, New Jersey native, averaged 17.8 points, 3.8 assists, and 1.8 steals with a 45/45/82 shooting splits in 28.1 minutes in 13 games with the Knicks’ G League affiliate team.

Powell was the 2019-20 Big East Player of the Year and was named to the First Team All-American. But he went undrafted, and the Knicks signed him to an exhibit 10 contract to join their training camp.

Harper is expected to sign a second 10-day contract which will make him part of the Knicks for the rest of the regular season.
