Knicks invite two forwards to camp

With training camp about to begin the New York Knicks sent out their final invitations, bringing their roster to 18 players. Today the two invited Josh Powell and Ike Diogu, both power forwards. An area that is definitely of need, especially with Jeremy Tyler recovering from stress fracture surgery.

The Knicks have filled out their training-camp roster by adding two journeyman power forwards, Ike Diogu and Josh Powell, according to a source.

I wouldn’t expect either player to make the roster. Powell hasn’t played in the NBA since 2011, last year he played in Greece and Puerto Rico. Diogu played in China last season after being cut during training camp by the Phoenix Suns.
