Veteran guard plans to sign with Knicks after buyout

Shake Milton plans to join the Knicks after clearing waivers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Multiple contenders were reportedly interested in the 27-year-old shooting guard, who reached a buyout agreement with the Pistons Friday night, allowing him to appear in the playoffs with another team.

New York will be the third team of the season for Milton, who signed with Minnesota last summer and was shipped to Detroit at the trade deadline. He appeared in just four games for the Pistons and didn’t appear to be in the team’s long-range plans with a non-guaranteed $5MM contract for next season.

The Knicks contacted the Wolves about Milton prior to the deadline, tweets Ian Begley of SNY.

Averaging 4.9 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 42 combined games this season, Milton will provide another wing scoring threat for New York, which is dealing with injuries throughout its roster. He will compete for playing time with two other former Pistons, Bojan Bogdanovic and Alec Burks, who were both acquired in a trade with Detroit last month.
