Chris Duhon verbally agreed to a deal with the New York Knicks on Friday, the point guard and his agent told The Sporting News.
``I am just excited, I am ready to get to work for the Knicks,'' said Duhon, the former Duke player who averaged 6.9 points and 4.5 assists in four seasons for Chicago. ``It's a big stage, playing in New York. It's something every player in the NBA wants.''
Duhon's agent, Kevin Bradbury, told The Sporting News that he couldn't comment on terms of the deal, but the magazine cited an unidentified source in its Web site report as saying Duhon will get a two-year deal starting at the full mid-level exception. The mid-level exception will be announced July 9, when contracts can officially be signed.
``Chris could have shopped himself around more, but in the end, he wanted a fit where he felt comfortable and he knew what kind of opportunity he would be getting,'' Bradbury said. ``He wasn't worried about trying to find more money on the market or anything like that. He wanted the right situation, and this just felt like the right situation.''
