If you thought New York Knicks are done with offseason moves, think again. After getting Marcus Morris under the San Antonio Spurs’ nose, Knicks now signed another forward in Reggie Bullock.
Bullock, who split the past season between Detroit Pistons and Los Angeles Lakers, agreed to a two-year, $8.2 million deal with the Knicks on Tuesday. The player’s agent, David Bauman later confirmed the news to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, adding that the second year on the deal is a team option.
New York Knicks and Bullock originally had a two-year, $21 million agreement in place but had to rework the contract when it was discovered that the 28-year-old has certain health concerns. Knicks remained interested in the player but nixed the original deal which eventually allowed them to sign Morris.
Reggie Bullock started the last season with the Detroit Pistons, playing 44 games with the team and averaging 12.1 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 2.5 assists. This, combined with 38.8 three-point shooting percentage encouraged the Lakers to trade for him, hoping to fuel their playoff run.
Bullock, however, failed to make an impact in Los Angeles and finished his time with the organization by playing 19 games in which he scored 9.4 points and added 2.6 rebounds per game.
