The New York Knicks signed guard Ricky Ledo to a 10-day contract, the team announced on Thursday.

Ledo was released by the Dallas Mavericks last month in order to make room for Amar'e Stoudemire.

The 22-year-old played in 16 games with Dallas over the past two seasons. In 26 games in the D-League with the Texas Legends this season, he averaged 16.6 points, 4.6 rebounds and 4.2 assists while shooting 44.6% from the field.

Ledo was a top recruit in the high school class of 2012 and committed to play at Providence, but he never suited up for the Friars due to eligibility issues. He was a second-round by the Mavericks in 2013.

The Knicks are tied for with the Minnesota Timberwolves for the worst record in the league at 14-53.
