Chris Duhon Inks Two-year Deal with New York Knicks

 After four years with the Bulls, point guard Chris Duhon is moving on, verbally agreeing to a deal with the Knicks on Friday, according to Duhon and his agent, Kevin Bradbury.

Bradbury could not comment on the terms of the deal. But a source said it was a major commitment on the part of the Knicks — a two-year deal starting at the full mid-level exception. The value of the mid-level exception will be announced on July 9 (when contracts can officially be signed) but it’s expected to be about $5.8 million, making Duhon’s total contract worth around $12 million.

"I am just excited, I am ready to get to work for the Knicks," Duhon said. "It’s a big stage, playing in New York. It’s something every player in the NBA wants."
