NEW YORK (AP) -- The New York Knicks have signed center Cole Aldrich, a former lottery pick who has struggled in the NBA.

Aldrich played last season for Houston and Sacramento, averaging 2.2 points and 2.7 rebounds in 45 games.

The 6-foot-11 Aldrich was drafted by New Orleans with the 11th pick in 2010 after three seasons at Kansas, where he helped the Jayhawks win the 2008 national championship. The Hornets traded his draft rights to Oklahoma City.

Aldrich has career averages of 2.0 points and 2.3 rebounds in 89 games over three seasons.
