The Knicks have signed Real Madrid forward Maurice Ndour, he announced in a post on Instagram.
Ndour, 24, impressed the Knicks last year at Summer League in Las Vegas, scoring 23 points in a game against then-rookie Jahlil Okafor and the 76ers. Following Summer League, Ndour signed a multi-year deal with the Mavericks, but was waived in October.
After he was released, Ndour joined the Real Madrid in Liga ACB after the season had already started. He played in under 25% of the team’s games, averaging 2.3 points and 1.8 rebounds in 9.6 minutes.
The signing of Ndour brings the Knicks to 14 players. He joins Joakim Noah, Kristaps Porzingis, Willy Hernangomez, Kyle O’Quinn and Marshall Plumlee in the frontcourt.
On Tuesday, the team re-signed veteran guard Sasha Vujacic to a one-year deal worth the veteran’s minimum.
