Free agent point guard Trey Burke has agreed to a deal with the Philadelphia 76ers, according to Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The deal will be partially guaranteed and for the veteran's minimum, Pompey added.

Burke played well for the New York Knicks to start the season, then was traded to the Dallas Mavericks as part of the Kristaps Porzingis deal.

Burke, 26, was drafted by the Utah Jazz with the ninth overall pick in 2013. He has also spent time with the Washington Wizards along with the Knicks and Mavericks.

He averaged 10.8 points and 2.7 assists in 58 total games last season.

The 76ers lost backup point guard T.J. McConnell in free agency (Indiana Pacers), but added Burke and Raul Neto.
