The Knicks have signed center Cole Aldrich, the team announced.
Aldrich played 45 games last season with the Houston Rockets and Sacramento Kings. He had 2.2 points and 2.7 rebounds per game.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed, as per team policy.
The 6′ 11″ center was drafted 11th overall in 2010 out of Kansas.
Harris DeckerThis was the type of signing we were all waiting for. While the team has a ton of depth at guard and forward, there wasn’t much size on the bench. This signing won’t impact the team in the playoffs but as far as playing a full season goes, Aldrich will offer a steady presence on a bench that could be the best in the league. Of course, much of that status rests on Amar’e Stoudemire but this signing makes a ton of sense for the Knicks.
