The New York Knicks have agreed to sign free-agent center Kevin Seraphin to a one-year contract worth $2.8 million, according to multiple reports.

Michael Scotto of Sheridan Hoops was first to report the agreement. ESPN’s Brian Windhorst and Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post both reported the terms of the deal. 

Seraphin, 25, spent the last five seasons with the Washington Wizards. In 79 games off the bench last season, he averaged 6.6 points and 3.6 rebounds in 15.6 minutes per game.

Seraphin is the fifth frontcourt player the Knicks have added this off-season to help improve their standing as the league’s second-worst rebounding team. The team also signed center Robin Lopez and forwards Kyle O’Quinn and Derrick Williams in free agency and spent the fourth pick in the draft on Latvian big man Kristaps Porzingis.
