Seton Hall alum Myles Powell had been thriving with the Westchester Knicks, and the Milwaukee Bucks have taken notice.
Powell, who signed with the Knicks as an undrafted free agent last year, is signing with the Bucks on a two-way contract, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.
Powell was waived by the Knicks after the preseason but made noise in the G League, scoring a career-high 31 points on Feb. 17 to help his current stat line of 17.8 points, 3.3 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game in 13 G-League contests.
The Jersey native is one of the top players in Seton Hall history, graduating as the third-leading scorer in Pirates history and the first Seton Hall player to be named a consensus first-team All-American since 1953. In his senior season, he was named the Big East Player of the Year and won the Jerry West Award as the nation’s top shooting guard.
But now that he’s headed to Milwaukee, Powell won’t get to take the floor at Madison Square Garden in front of his hometown fans, at least not in a Knicks uniform.
