According to ESPN, the two-year deal is worth $8.2 million. The second year is a team option.

Bullock had reportedly agreed to a two-year, $21 million contract with the Knicks when free agency opened earlier this month, but a medical issue forced the two sides to agree to new terms. It's not clear what the medical issue is, but it was significant enough to cost Bullock nearly $13 million.

The Knicks used some of those savings to add former Celtics forward Marcus Morris to a one-year, $15 million deal last week, whose signing was also announced by the Knicks on Tuesday. 

“With Reggie and Marcus we are adding two more versatile, hard-nosed and accomplished players to an already improved roster,” genearl manager Scott Perry said in a news release. “We value both players’ perimeter shooting ability and their strong presence on the court and in the locker room. We’re excited to have them in New York and are confident they will excel playing for this team under Coach (David) Fizdale.”

Bullock, 28, was a first-round pick by the Los Angeles Clippers in 2013. The 6-foot-7 205-pounder split the 2018-19 season between the Detroit Pistons and Los Angeles Lakers, averaging 11.3 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game.
