The Knicks didn’t add any of the big names that were available this offseason, but they’ve added a handful of useful rotation players, and that trend has continued into August:
BREAKING: New York Knicks have agreed to sign Kevin Seraphin to a one-year, $2.8 million deal, a league source tells Sheridan Hoops.

Seraphin spent his first five seasons with the Wizards after being drafted by the Bulls in the first round of the 2010 Draft and being shipped to Washington as a sweetener for dumping Kirk Hinrich‘s contract in that insane summer free agency that saw LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh team up in Miami.
At 25 years old, he’s the right kind of signing as an experienced rotation big with a shot at still developing a bit more. The problem for New York is if he does expand his game, there won’t be any value to be had for the following season, though Seraphin may have wanted a one year contract no matter what, especially with the impending cap boom.
