NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The New York Knicks have signed veteran forward Ike Diogu, who has been out of the NBA for nearly all of the last two seasons.

In addition to the Golden State Warriors, Diogu also has played for Indiana, Portland, Sacramento, the Los Angeles Clippers and San Antonio. He appeared in two games for the Spurs in 2011-12, then played in Puerto Rico and China.

Diogu has averaged 6.0 points in 225 games in his six seasons.
