Washington, 23, finished last season with New York on a two-way deal, but was recently waived. It became known Monday that they intended to bring him back, though no specifics were provided at the time.
An Exhibit 10 contract counts toward a team’s training camp roster of 20, but not the regular-season roster unless the player is signed to a standard deal.
Washington is entering his third NBA season and the Knicks are his third team. He was waived by the Suns on Feb. 1, then signed by the Knicks a week later. In 31 games last season, all with Phoenix, he averaged 7.9 points and shot 36 percent on 3-pointers.
He appeared in 48 games with the Pacers as a rookie, averaging 9.9 points. Washington has started a combined 10 games during his NBA career. Along with the NBA, he has also spent time in the G League with the Westchester Knicks.
Not sure if anyone put these details out yet, but just in case: Duane Washington Jr.'s deal with the Knicks is a training camp contract, league sources say.
