The Westchester Knicks acquired the returning rights to Tim Bond following a trade during the G League Draft. He came into Westchester on crutches and didn’t suit up in the first five games due to a right ankle sprain. He recorded seven points, four rebounds, three assists, and two steals in his season debut on November 22 against the Wisconsin Herd.
Bond played in 18 minutes per game in November, as he worked his way back from his injury. His role increased as the season went on and started in four games when players were injured.
The second-year guard showed he was able to create for others and averaged six assists in four games as a starter. He dished 11 assists in one of those games and was three rebounds short of a triple-double against the Fort Wayne Mad Ants. Bond showed he was able to get to the basket and was able to pull up and hit the midrange shot. He showed he could do a little bit of everything and showed to be a valuable contributor during the 2019-20 season.
Bond was efficient with his outside shot despite not taking many perimeter shots. He led the team in three-point percentage and his 44.3 mark was fifth best in the league with a minimum of 25 games played.
