    Nyk Logo Knicks Sign Center Randoph Morris To 2-Year Deal

    New York Knickerbockers President of Basketball Operations and Head Coach Isiah Thomas announced today that free agent center/forward Randolph Morris has been signed to a contract. As per club policy, terms of the deal are not announced.

    Morris, 6-11, 260-pounds, averaged 12.6 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in 89 career games over three seasons at the University of Kentucky. As a junior in 2006-07, Morris averaged career-highs of 16.1 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.1 blocks per game and earned First Team All-SEC honors in leading the Wildcats to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

    Randolph had declared himself eligible for the 2005 NBA Draft following his freshman year at Kentucky, but did not sign with an agent. After going undrafted, Randolph returned to Kentucky but was forced to sit out the first 14 games of his sophomore campaign. Due to a provision in the NBA’s Collective Bargaining Agreement, Morris is prohibited from re-entering the NBA Draft and had free agent status throughout the 2006-07 season at Kentucky. [READ]

    I thought especially with lee returning now that the knicks needed another shooting guard more than anything else. I guess isiah is frustrated with curry being frustrated and struggling. If Curry and King James werent gettin it done, why not try cato before signing someone else? It don't make sense to me.

    This guy doesn't seem that bad of a player. I hope Isiah knows what he's doing but I think its a good sign. I dont want a 10- game contract please I don't, since this guy played well in Kentucky he might play well here in the NBA for the knicks. But why didn't any other team pick him up earlier?

    he declared for the draft in 05 and he didnt get picked so that makes em a unrestricted free agent but i heard he still going to skool right now

    No, ur right- its yours. thank you for clarifying mr. truth. All of NYC can relax now, whew..


    Maybe this will add some fire under Curry's belt. He's been looking like his tank is pretty empty. I guess 1mil aint a thing to the Knicks, but why two years???? I thought we changed the business plan. lol I can't wait until our last 2 season are made into a Will Ferrel movie. Should be fun too watch.

    We probably could of used Jim Jackson more than him for the final 14 games, but i guess this is one of those future moves. I wont ever question his draft picks, but its just a super weird scenario on how this works out.

    Then again, we are talking about a team who screwed up the Allan Houston clause by cutting the wrong player. Good times = ) lets take our beating tonight and pray the Pacers dont decide they actually want to get into the playoffs. Indiana and Boston should be fined for their bad job on hiding their ambitions of "tanking the season". Where r u David Stern?
