Jenkins signed a contract with the Knicks on Tuesday, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins has suited up for four total games over the last two seasons and he's unlikely to crack the Knicks roster despite Tuesday's deal. He'll merely offer another body in the backcourt temporarily and will likely start the year in the G-League or head back overseas if cut as expected. Jenkins suited up for San Pablo Inmobiliaria Burgos of the Spanish ACB League last year where he averaged 12.7 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.3 assists across 22.9 minutes.

Jenkins totaled 25 points (9-12 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two assists and one rebound in 21 minutes during Sunday's 95-80 summer league victory over the Celtics.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins caught fire Sunday, rarely missing on his way to a game-high 25 points. He has demonstrated the ability to score the ball but offers very little outside of that. He has bounced around both the league and overseas since being drafted in 2012 and looks headed for much of the same this season barring any minor miracles.

Jenkins has accepted a summer league invite to play with the Trail Blazers, Chris Haynes of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins, the 23rd overall pick to Atlanta in the 2012 NBA Draft, has played 145 NBA games between the Hawks, the Suns and the Mavericks. Last season, he appeared in 16 G-League games for the Westchester Knicks, averaging 20.9 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 34.5 minutes. Jenkins also spent 22 games overseas last year with San Pablo Inmobiliaria Burgos of the Spanish ACB.

Jenkins signed a contract Monday with Spanish club CB Miraflores of the Liga ACB, freelance reporter David Pick reports.

EDGE Analysis

A first-round pick of the Hawks in 2012, Jenkins will head overseas after five years of limited success as a three-point specialist at the NBA level. Given his pedigree, Jenkins could immediately become one of the top scorers in Spain, which may allow him to attract some NBA attention next summer.

Jenkins agreed to a training camp deal with the Hawks on Sunday, Michael Scotto of Basketball Insiders reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins locked up one of the last roster spots with the Suns a season ago, but ended up taking part in just four games before being waived in January. He'll now join Atlanta for training camp ahead of the upcoming campaign, though he faces an uphill battle for making the final roster. Even if he does make the team, Jenkins would likely just fill a role as a deep reserve, which should keep him off the fantasy radar.

Jenkins was waived by the Suns on Friday, ESPN.com's Marc Stein reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins has been outside coach Earl Watson's rotation all season, appearing in just four contests and averaging 3.3 minutes per game. With the rebuilding Suns determining that Jenkins wasn't a part of their long-term plans, they decided to cut bait in order to free up a roster spot for another player.

Jenkins (coach's decision) didn't see the court in Tuesday's 112-105 loss to the Jazz.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins is buried on the depth chart at shooting guard and the Suns haven't dealt with any extensive injuries at the position, so he's had few chances to play this season. He's only appeared in three of the team's 21 games, logging a grand total of 10 minutes.

Jenkins has made the Suns' final 15-man roster, Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

After being released by the Mavericks in February, Jenkins was claimed by the Suns and was with the team throughout the offseason and into training camp. His contract for the upcoming season was not guaranteed and his chances of making the final roster appeared slim, but after the Suns opted to surprisingly release Archie Goodwin earlier Monday, Jenkins roster spot, as well as his contract, are now slated to become guaranteed. He's expected to operate in a depth role in the backcourt during the 2016-17 campaign, but remains a bit buried and likely will struggle to see fantasy worthy minutes in his time off the bench.

Jenkins (abdomen) participated in Monday's scrimmage, Paul Coro of The Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins sat out the Suns' last two preseason games while nursing an abdomen injury, but is now back to full strength. He should be available for Friday's preseason finale versus the Lakers and will need to have a strong showing, as it will be his last chance to prove he deserves a spot on the final regular season roster.
