The Knicks have signed Ricky Ledo for the remainder of the season, the team announced (Twitter link). Ledo’s second 10-day contract with the team expired overnight. It’s not immediately clear if the pact carries into next season, but either way, New York has control over the point guard’s NBA destination for 2015/16. A deal that covers only the rest of this season would allow the Knicks to make him a restricted free agent with a qualifying offer of $1,147,276.
The 22-year-old shooting guard has played a more prominent role in his brief time with the lottery-bound Knicks than he did with the playoff-contending Mavericks during his season and a half with them. Ledo is averaging 9.5 points and 3.4 rebounds in 21.1 minutes per night across eight games with New York. He’s made nine of 21 total attempts from behind the three-point line.
Ledo gives the Knicks a full roster of 15 players signed through at least the end of the season. He’s the fourth Knick to have wound up with a deal that covers the balance of 2014/15 after having initially joined New York on a 10-day contract this year, as our 10-Day Contract Tracker shows.
