After inking Brandon Jennings to a one-year deal, the Knicks are making more moves to shore up their depth. Chris Haynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that they’ve reached a four-year deal with Lance Thomas, who had a breakout season in New York last year.
ESPN.com’s Ian Begley reports that the deal starts at just over $6 million annually.
Thomas has bounced around in his five-season career between New Orleans, Oklahoma City and the D-League, but he seems to have found a home in New York, turning himself into a solid two-way forward. It’s a win for the Knicks that they were able to get him back at a reasonable price, another nice under-the-radar move in what has been a solid offseason.
