NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The Knicks have signed former Vanderbilt center Luke Kornet to one of the two-way contracts allowable under the new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

NBA teams are allowed two two-way players on their roster in addition to their 15-man roster. The two-way player spends most of his time with the NBA club’s G League affiliate, but can spend up to 45 days with the NBA team during the season.
