New York, NY (November 12, 2015) – MSG Networks announced today that New York Liberty forward Swin Cash has been added as a Knicks studio analyst for select games during the 2015-16 season.

Cash commented on her new role saying, “As a professional athlete, I have been immersed in the world of basketball for most of my life.

To be able to use my basketball IQ to cover the New York Knicks for MSG Networks is an incredible opportunity. I’m excited to get started!”

Her career includes three WNBA Championships, five WNBA All-star game appearances (including MVP awards in two of the games), two Olympic Gold Medals and two NCAA Women’s Division 1 championships. In addition, Cash has appeared as a panelist on the CBS Sports Network program “We Need to Talk” and as a guest analyst on CBS Sports Network, ESPN, NBA TV and NBCSN.
