After an active Sunday night, the Knicks continue their free agent signings with veteran SG Wayne Ellington joining the team on a two-year deal, SNY's Ian Begley confirmed. The deal is worth $16 million over that span.
Entering his 11th season in the league, the Knicks will be Ellington's 10th NBA team. His most recent was the Pistons after getting traded from Miami to Detroit last year. He averaged 12 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists over 27.3 minutes up north.
Ellington comes to the Knicks as a solid three-point shooter, averaging 38 percent from beyond the arc over his career. Turning 32 in November, he is also another veteran presence in David Fizdale's locker room that can guide the young core.
The Knicks didn't make the big splash for Kevin Durant or Kyrie Irving, but they have added some solid players to make their team more competitive next season. Ellington joins the likes of Julius Randle, Bobby Portis, Reggie Bullock and Taj Gibson in New York next season.
