Free-agent centre Nerlens Noel has reportedly agreed to a one-year, $5-million deal with the New York Knicks, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
Noel appeared in 61 games last season for the Oaklahoma City Thunder, averaging 7.4 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.5 blocks.
A former sixth-overall pick in the 2013 draft, Noel will join what is currently a crowded New York front court featuring Mitchell Robinson and Ed Davis.
The Knicks entered this off-season with rumours swirling around the franchise and how it would spend its cap space. To this point, none of their moves have made a significant splash.
New York reportedly signed free-agent guard Elfrid Payton on Saturday to help shore up its perimeter depth, and penned Alec Burks to a one-year, $6-million deal when free agency began.
