NBA Free Agency 2012: Knicks Sign Former Georgetown Hoya Henry Sims

Henry Sims, a former Georgetown Hoyas men's basketball player, was signed by the New York Knicks Tuesday, ESPN New York's Ian Begley is reporting. Sims, who appeared in the NBA's Las Vegas Summer League with both the Utah Jazz and the Chicago Bulls, was one of a handful of signings for New York, which was trying expand its roster to the training camp maximum of 20.

Sims (6'10, 245 pounds) played four years for the Hoyas and averaged 11.6 points, 6.0 rebounds and a team-high 3.5 assists and 1.4 blocks per game in his senior season. The 22-year-old was a bit of a late bloomer for Georgetown, which used him as a backup to Greg Monroe, who's now with the Detroit Pistons.

Sims is a Baltimore native and an alumnus of Mount St. Joseph's High School.
