Knicks sign ex-Blazers, Bulls forward Vonleh


The Knicks have signed forward Noah Vonleh, who played for the Blazers and Bulls last season.

The New York Knicks signed free-agent big man Noah Vonleh Tuesday.

The team did not disclose terms of the deal.

Vonleh, 22, split time between the Portland Trail Blazers and Chicago Bulls last season, averaging 4.9 points and 5.8 rebounds in 16 minutes per game.

Vonleh, the No. 9 pick in the 2014 NBA draft, will compete for a rotation spot on New York’s front line.

Once Vonleh signs, New York will have 16 players under NBA contracts and two players under two-way contracts, so they will need to waive or trade a player before opening night to satisfy the NBA’s roster limit.
