GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- The Knicks liked Jeremy Tyler's potential and now they'll be able to keep a close eye on his progress.
The Knicks' D-League affiliate, the Erie BayHawks, acquired Tyler in a trade.
The 6-10 Tyler was with the Knicks during camp but missed it due to surgery to repair a broken bone in his foot.
The Knicks cut him but wanted to keep an eye on him. With Tyler now with the BayHawks, the big man can rehab with the Knicks' staff while learning the team's offensive and defensive systems. The Knicks would have to cut somebody if they want to add Tyler to the roster.
The BayHawks also drafted Ricky Davis in the recent Developmental League draft.
