Courtney Lee completes the Knicks’ starting 5

First they signed Derrick Rose, then they added Joakim Noah. With Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis already in the position, the final piece of the puzzle was a starting shooting guard.

After numerous rumors that surfed the web, including names such as Eric Gordon or Dwyane Wade, Phil Jackson went for the 30 year old vet, Courtney Lee.

The two parts have agreed to a 4 year deal worth $48 million.

As a solid perimeter defender, Courtney Lee played for six other teams since his draft win 2008. Traded in mid-season by the Grizzlies to the Hornets, Lee averaged 8.9 points and 3.1 rebounds in 30 minutes per game with Charlotte.

Now, with the lineup completed since the second day of the free agency, the Knicks can now look for a backup point guard.
