James White Agrees To 1-Year Contract With Knicks

James White agreed to a league-minimum one-year, $854,000 contract with the New York Knicks on Wednesday. The 6'7" forward spent this past season with VL Pesaro of the Italian Serie A, averaging 17 points, five rebounds and three assists per game. He led the league with 21 points per game during his previous season with Dinamo Sassari.

"I'm overjoyed and relieved," he said. "I'm not coming in to be a guy who doesn't play. I think I have the ability to contribute a lot and to make everyone around me better."

White, 29, has spent two stints in the NBA. He played six games with the San Antonio Spurs during the 2006-07 season and appeared in four games for a total of 11 minutes with the Houston Rockets during the 2008-09 season.

White may be best known for his outstanding athleticism. He earned the nickname "Flight" for his impressive aerial assaults on the basketball rim.
