The NY Knicks have signed Sasha Vujacic to a free agent contract and he is guaranteed to stick around for the season along with Langston Galloway and this comes as Thanasis Antetokounmpo has signed a contract and he will compete with Wesley Saunders and Darion Atkins in training camp for a roster spot. The Knicks also have signed Kevin Seraphin to a free agent deal to have a backup for Robin Lopez.

The Knicks have been working to complete their roster this summer and the team comes in after letting go of Ricky Ledo. The team signed Robin Lopez, Arron Afflalo and Derrick Williams this offseason and they have added Seraphin as another big man to play behind the starting center. The Knicks saw Cole Aldrich sign with the Clippers and now they have a solid replacement.

According to ESPN New York, the deal with Vujacic is a guaranteed deal and that means he will be with the team out of training camp unless something happens. Vujacic reportedly has signed a deal for one year at $1.35 million and Ian Begley reports that the Knicks used the $2.8 million exception on Seraphin. Vujacic last played in the NBA for the Clippers back in 2013 and he previously played for Phil Jackson in Los Angeles, winning in the finals with the Lakers.

Galloway is on a partially guaranteed contract, but ESPN reports he will make the roster out of camp after playing well last season. Galloway played well in the Summer League, averaging 11 points, three assists and one steal per game for the Knicks. The team has also reportedly signed Antetokounmpo, who was a second round pick for New York last year. The 2014 draft pick Antetokounmpo reportedly has $75,000 guaranteed and he will be in competition with Atkins and Saunders to make the roster, according to ESPN New York.
