The New York Knicks decided to release center/forward Jeremy Tyler in favor of guard Chris Smith last week and now word comes from the New York Post that the team is in negotiations with the Golden State Warriors to gain his D-League rights.
Tyler is currently recovering from a stress fracture in his left foot and he can't continue his rehab program with the Knicks because he last played in the D-League with the Santa Cruz Warriors and they own his rights. Once Golden State trades his rights to the Knicks' D-League team in Erie, PA he can get back to work with the Knicks training staff.
