Alec Burks is the first free-agent addition under Knicks President Leon Rose.

The swingman agreed to a $6 million, one-year deal, first reported by ESPN and confirmed by his agent.

Burks split last season between Golden State and Philadelphia, averaging a career-best 15 points.

The Knicks went into free agency with about $35 million to spend after waiving a number of veterans Thursday.
