NEW YORK, N.Y. - The Knicks have signed forward Jeremy Tyler and waived guard Chris Smith, whose roster spot had caused some controversy in New York.

Tyler had been playing for Erie, the Knicks' NBA Development League affiliate, after recovering from a broken right foot. The Knicks had originally signed him in August but waived him in October following his injury.

Tyler, who first made news when he left his San Diego high school to play professionally overseas, has appeared in 63 NBA games for Golden State and Atlanta. He averaged 18 points and 10.2 rebounds in six games for Erie.

Smith made the roster out of training camp, shortly after coach Mike Woodson said it would be a consideration for the guard that his older brother, J.R., plays for the team. Critics argued that Chris Smith wouldn't have made the team otherwise, and he appeared in only two games.
