According to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com, the New York Knicks have agreed to a one-year, $2.8 million deal with former Washington Wizards center Kevin Seraphin. New York will sign Seraphin with their room exception.* 

Seraphin, who spent the first five years of his career in Washington, was used sparingly last season, but will likely serve as Robin Lopez’s backup at center in New York. Seraphin is a solid post-up player with a penchant for shooting the jump-hook, a shot he has becoming increasingly comfortable and effective with over the years. 

The backup center role seems to be reserved for Seraphin, but he’ll certainly encounter his fair-share of competition as he looks to vie for more playing time and a defined role with the Knicks. (Seraphin averaged only 15.6 minutes per game for the Wizards last season.) New York has undergone a roster overhaul this summer, bringing in the likes of Kyle O’Quinn, Derrick Williams and No. 4 overall pick Kristaps Porzingis into the frontcourt. 

In addition to those names, you still have Lance Thomas, Lou Amundson and oh: Carmelo Anthony aka the Knicks’ best player.

New York’s glut of big mans will make for some intense battles during training camp and practice sessions, and is something we’ll certainly continue to keep an eye on as the season gets closer.
