The New York Knicks have been one of NBA's hottest topics this summer. After drafting Frank Ntilikina as the eighth overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, fans have started to wonder if the team is really headed in the right direction. Also, there were many rumors and speculations throughout the entire offseason about the potential Carmelo Anthony trade as he is obviously looking to leave New York. The Knicks then proceeded to fire Phil Jackson as their president of basketball operations and it feels like brighter days might be coming for the fans in New York.

After Kyrie Irving requested to be traded from Cleveland earlier this summer, he mentioned the New York Knicks as one of his preferred landing spots. But before we see whether or not Irving finishes in New York, one other player has already agreed to join the Knicks.

Beasley teaming up with Porzingis

ESPN's Ian Begley reported on Tuesday that the New York Knicks have agreed on a one-year deal with Michael Beasley. Beasley will sign a one-year contract for the veteran's minimum, worth around $2,1 million.

Beasley was the second overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft, drafted by the Miami Heat.

He is a nine-year NBA veteran, with great potential and skills on the offensive end of the floor. His best season was during the 2010/2011 campaign with the Timberwolves when he averaged 19.2 points and 5.6 rebounds per game. Last season he played for the Milwaukee Bucks, but he played just 16.7 minutes per game in 56 games with the Bucks.

He averaged 9.4 points and 3.4 rebounds per game last season while shooting 53% from the field. He is a versatile, 6-foot-9 small forward and it will be interesting to see him play alongside Kristaps Porzingis next season. It is more than likely that he will continue to come off the bench next season as well.

The Lakers sign a 24-year-old point guard

Shams Charania of The Vertical reported on Tuesday that the Los Angeles Lakers have signed Briante Weber to a one-year deal. Weber's contract will repotedly be partially guaranteed. He is a 6-foot-2, defensive-minded point guard with questionable offensive abilities.

Weber entered the league in 2015, and last season he played 7 games for the Warriors and 13 games for the Charlotte Hornets. He had some solid moments with the Hornets last season as he averaged 3.8 points and 1.3 assists per game during the 2016/2017 campaign with Charlotte. Weber will serve as a backup point guard for the Lakers next season, playing behind Tyler Ennis and Lonzo Ball.
