Greg Seitz has been at Jacksonville State for nearly three decades, through a Division II national championship, conference titles and FCS playoff runs.

But the Gamecocks athletic director and longtime staffer has never seen anything quite as big as that walk-off Hail Mary to beat Florida State 20-17 last Saturday night.

“When you consider just where that program has been … I think that probably in my mind is probably the biggest win in Jacksonville State football history,” Seitz said.

Walker, who was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder in June, has agreed to a buyout. The terms of his contract with the Knicks are unknown at this time.

Even though Walker struggled this past season with the Boston Celtics, the NBA world seems very excited about New York’s outlook for next season.

New York already has a plethora of talented players on its roster, such as RJ Barrett, Julius Randle and Derrick Rose. However, the Knicks were unable to get out of the first round of the playoffs in large part because of their flaws on the offensive side of the floor.

Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes (h/t ABC-7’s Mark Schanowksi) reported on NBA TV’s Free Agency Special that unless there is a “major hiccup” in negotiations, Ball is expected to work out a deal to become a member of the Bulls.

Ball recorded his best field goal (41.4), three-point (37.8) and free throw (78.1) percentages last season, and though his stats
