Orlando Magic free agent point guard Beno Udrih will sign a one-year deal with the New York Knicks, according to tweets Thursday morning from Newsday's Al Iannazzone. Exact terms of the deal have not been disclosed but it is reported that the contract will be for the veteran's minimum.

The six-foot-three Udrih, who made approximately $7.3 million last season with the Magic, will provide insurance to a relatively thin one-spot comprised of Raymond Felton and 36-year-old sophomore guard Pablo Prigioni. Earlier in the offseason, the Knicks, who now have 14 players under contract, decided to keep swingman J.R. Smith, signing him to a two-year deal that could be worth approximately $18 million if he takes the player option for the third season.

The Slovenian guard, who turned 31 in July, averaged 10.2 points and 6.1 assists in 27 games last season for the 20-62 Magic. He was sent to Orlando last season in the deadline deal with the Bucks that allowed Milwaukee to acquire J.J. Redick.
