The Knicks have signed Nigel Hayes to a partially guaranteed contract, according to ESPN.
The Wisconsin forward played for the Knicks’ summer league squad after going undrafted.
The 22-year-old ripped New York when he traveled to the Big Apple to play at the Garden during the NCAA Sweet 16 earlier this year.
“I don’t really like New York,” Hayes said. “It’s too big, it’s dirty, there’s trash everywhere, too many people. It’s cold right now.”
Clearly, Hayes has decided that he’ll put that behind him and deal with life in the big city.
