NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The New York Knicks have signed Damien Inglis, a 6-foot-8 forward who played sparingly for the Milwaukee Bucks last season.

The team did not disclose contract terms Tuesday.

Inglis played in 20 games for the Bucks last season, averaging 1.8 points and 7.8 minutes. He missed the entire 2014-15 season because of injury. He appeared in four games for the New Orleans Pelicans’ entry in the 2016 NBA Summer League, averaging 4.0 points and 3.2 rebounds.

The 245-pounder was drafted by Milwaukee in the second round in 2014 after playing professionally in France. Inglis is from French Guiana on the north coast of South America.
