The New York Knicks reportedly agreed to a deal with Dwayne Bacon on Monday, a day after the guard was waived by the Orlando Magic.

Multiple media outlets reported the agreement, but no terms were revealed.

Bacon, 25, averaged a career-best 10.9 points with 3.1 rebounds over 72 games (50 starts) for the Magic last season after playing his first three campaigns with the Charlotte Hornets.

Over his four NBA seasons, the Florida State product has averaged 7.3 points and 2.6 rebounds in 207 games. Bacon was a second-round draft pick by the New Orleans Pelicans in 2017 and was traded to the Hornets on draft night for Frank Jackson.

Bacon was waived by Orlando just before the deadline that would have guaranteed a $1.8 million contract for the upcoming season.
