Knicks sign forward to two-way contract

The Knicks have signed Jacob Toppin to a two-way contract, according to a release from the team.

Toppin spent most of the season on a two-way with New York, but was briefly promoted to the 15-man roster on a 10-day deal. Now with that expired, he’s back on a two-way contract.

Toppin, 23, appeared in eight games with New York so far this season, averaging 1.6 points. He’s been more productive in the G League, averaging 18.0 points and 7.8 rebounds in 32 regular season and Showcase Cup appearances with the Westchester Knicks.

The 6-foot-9 forward went undrafted last year out of Kentucky after averaging 12.4 points and 6.8 rebounds in his final collegiate season.
