Knicks Sign Canyon Barry, a Student of Triangles
In the days leading up to his Knicks practice last month, Barry Canyon set up a fast-paced session. He watched a Knicks game last season and studied his triangular attack, hoping to analyze cuts and moves he would make. To prove it, he then explained his subtleties to his agent.
The study session seems to have worked. The Knicks Barry added to his summer league team, accepting a contract as second N.B.A. Round Thursday night Project completed. He will join the Knicks next week in Orlando, Florida with Frank Ntilikina, the first round of the Knicks and the eighth pick above all. Both options of the second team, and Ognjen Damyean Dotson Jaramaz, must also be present.
Barry, the Hall of Fame’s youngest son Rick Barry, has a 23-year-old 6-foot-6-inch, a good size for a guard and also has a reputation for intelligence in both field and.
He won the sixth man of the year in the final season of the Southeast Florida Conference after his transfer from Charleston College, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in physics. Barry also attracted the looks with his frank shot shot, reaching 88.3 percent of his attempts last year by taking pictures with the blow, as his father did once.
