Patrick Aloysius Ewing, Jr. (born May 20, 1984 in Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.) is an American basketball player for the New York Knicks. He is the son of retired NBA Hall of Famer Patrick Ewing (who also played for the Knicks) and Sharon Campbell. He has three brothers and three sisters. He is 6'8" tall, weighs 240 pounds, and he plays the forward position.

Early life

He first attended Windward High School in White Plains, New York before going to Holy Innocents' Episcopal School, Marietta High School in Georgia, and National Christian Academy in Maryland. He signed with Indiana University on May 1, 2003. Following in his father's footsteps, he transferred in 2005 to Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. Under the NCAA transfer rules, Patrick Ewing, Jr., had to sit out the 2005-06 season.

In college, Ewing wore jersey number 33, like his father. Alonzo Mourning was last to use this number for Georgetown, and he reportedly had to get Mourning's permission before using it [cite web|title=JTIII Talks to D.C. Sports Bog|url=http://blog.washingtonpost.com/dcsportsbog/2006/10/jtiii_talks_to_us.html] .

In the 2007-08 season, he participated in the College Slam Dunk Contest at St. Mary's University in San Antonio, Texas during Final Four weekend.

Ewing's coach at Georgetown, John Thompson III, is the son of John Thompson, Jr., who coached the elder Ewing at Georgetown.

Pro career

Ewing was chosen as the 43rd overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft by the Sacramento Kings. He was traded to the Houston Rockets along with Sean Singletary and Ron Artest, then traded in exchange for the rights of Frédéric Weis to New York Knicks.

After some initial speculation that he would wear his father's retired number 33, Ewing took number 6 in honor of his favorite player Bill Russell (and was also his father's number in his final season with the Orlando Magic and on the USA Dream Team).
