Knicks Sign John Shurna

The Knicks have signed forward John Shurna to a one-year, partially guaranteed deal, according to Howard Beck of the New York Times (via Twitter).  The former Northwestern star hooked on with the Hawks summer league team after going undrafted in June.

Shurna, 22, averaged 20 PPG, 5.4 RPG, 2.8 APG, and 1.7 BPG in his final season at Northwestern.  Most impressively, Shurna shot 46.3% from the field while draining 44% of his shots from downtown.  While he offers an impressive shooting stroke for a 6'8" forward, it remains to be seen what position he can best fill at the next level.
