A product of the University of North Carolina who signed with the Nets after going undrafted in 2018, Pinson played two seasons with Brooklyn before being waived by Brooklyn and subsequently picked up the Knicks in 2020. While the Greensboro native has some size at 6-foot-5, he has struggled to find the bottom of the net at the NBA level with a career 30% field goal and 20.1% 3-point percentage.
There is hope for his game given he has also had an 89.5% career efficiency rate from the free throw line, but Pinson is fighting for his NBA career at this point, so expect a very vigorous camp battle.
With the former Tarheel will be facing off with Juwan Morgan, Gary Clark, perhaps Brandon Goodwin, Luke Kornet, and very possibly also former No. 3 overall pick Jabari Parker for two way and regular roster spots as camp begins next week.
