The Knicks came to terms with former Georgetown center Henry Sims, guard Oscar Bellfield, and forward Mychel Thompson.

All three guys worked out for the Knicks over the summer and will compete for one of the Knicks final roster spots, although it is more than likely all three will be heading to the D-League when it’s all said and done.

Sims, a seven-footer out of Georgetown, was ranked as the seventh-best center in this year’s draft by ESPN.com’s Chad Ford after averaging 11.6 PPG and 6.0 RPG in his senior year, but went undrafted.

UNLV’s Bellfield is a 6’2″ point guard who averaged 9.8 points and 5.4 assists on the season, while shooting 40 percent from the floor and 35.7 percent from behind the arc.

Thompson, has some NBA experience, after a brief stint with the Cavaliers last season.  He is the older brother of the Golden State Warriors Klay Thompson and  appeared in five games for Cleveland last season, starting three. He’s a year removed from going undrafted out of Pepperdine, where he averaged 14.6 PPG in his senior year.

The Knicks roster is now at 19, with seven players under non-guaranteed contracts.
