JULY 11TH, 9:50am: The Knicks have officially confirmed White's deal in a press release.

JULY 4TH, 10:21am: The Knicks' agreement with White is for a one-year contract, his agent confirmed to Al Iannazzone of Newsday (Twitter link). The deal is for the minimum salary, adds Iannazzone (Sulia link).

7:53am: The Knicks have agreed to terms with James White on a guaranteed deal, reports Emiliano Carchia of Sportando. White, a 6'7" wing, previously saw NBA action with the Rockets and Spurs, and played in Italy the last two seasons.

White, 29, was drafted out of the University of Cincinnati in 2006 by the Trail Blazers, with the 31st overall pick. His time in the NBA was limited to six games in 2006/07 and another four in 2008/09, but he's posted solid numbers in Italy over the last two years. In 66 games in 2010/11 and 2011/12, he averaged 18.7 PPG and shot nearly 53% from the floor.

White's agent told Sportando last month that his client was hoping to return to the NBA for the coming season.
