NASHVILLE, Tenn. 10/24/2023 – Former Belmont men’s basketball standout Dylan Windler has seen his professional playing contract upgraded with the New York Knicks.
Windler has received a standard NBA playing contract – after originally agreeing to a two-way deal in July.
The news was first reported by Keith Smith.
The 6-7 guard will be on the Knicks’ opening night roster Wednesday vs. Boston.
Windler played the last four seasons with the Cleveland Cavaliers, after being selected No. 26 overall in the 2019 NBA Draft.
Windler scored a career-high 15 points vs. Atlanta and made nine consecutive 3-pointers during a two-game stretch – the most for a Cav in six years.
The Indianapolis, Indiana native led Belmont to 94 victories and three conference championships in his career, including A5 victories over UCLA, Georgia and Vanderbilt. Windler capped his career by helping the Bruins earn their first-ever NCAA Tournament victory with a win over Temple. Two days later, he scored a game-high 35 points against Maryland.
