Knicks signing Austin Rivers in 2020 NBA free agency

The Knicks are bringing in another point guard.

Austin Rivers has agreed to a one-year contract with the team, ESPN reported Sunday, to help stabilize a position that has long-been a headache for the franchise.

Rivers, 28, spent last season in Houston, where he averaged 8.8 points and 1.7 assists in 68 games.

The specific terms of the contract were not immediately known.

The Knicks entered free agency with a league-high $40 million in cap space, but haven’t reached any long-term deals with higher-profile players.

With an eighth-straight playoff-less season looking likely, the rebuilding Knicks may look to unload Rivers at the trade deadline in order to acquire more draft assets.
