G League star Trey Burke has agreed to a deal with the New York Knicks. Burke can be left on waivers in standard fantasy leagues. Burke has appeared in 26 games for the Knicks G-League affiliate this season and is averaging 26.6 points, 5.3 assists and 2.7 3-pointers.

The 27-year-old point guard had already signed with the Knicks before the start of the season but was waived just three days later.

Burke was selected at No. 9 overall in the 2013 NBA Draft. He was immediately traded to the Utah Jazz in exchange for Shabazz Muhammad and Gorgui Dieng.

The Santa Ana Police Department added that the driver was driving at a very high rate of speed when their vehicle hit the median. Sanchez said the driver managed to get out but was hanging from the vehicle until police could catch him.

Now that he's an official member of the New York Knicks, Trey Burke will have a chance to right past wrongs and establish himself as a part of the franchise's future. General manager Scott Perry thanked Sessions on Saturday in announcing the move for "being a consummate professional and providing this team with veteran leadership". Frank Ntilikina looks the part of a potential defensive anchor, but most agree that the Knicks need an offensive-minded guard to help alleviate pressure from the rookie.

In four seasons in the National Basketball Association - three with the Jazz and one with the Wizards, Burke averaged 10.6 points, 3.6 assists and 2.1 rebounds per game. It will be interesting to see how will Hornacek distribute the minutes with the return of Tim Hardaway the lineup.
