Bullock’s agent, David Bauman, told Charania the news.
The 28-year-old averaged 11.3 points on 41.2 percent shooting for the Detroit Pistons and Los Angeles Lakers. The six-year veteran is a three-point shooting specialist who has knocked down 39.2 percent of his career shots beyond the arc. He notably hit seven threes en route to a career-high 33 points on Dec. 19.
Bullock rode the bench for two years but carved out a starting-lineup gig in 2017-18. In 62 games (52 starts), the 6’7" wing scored a career-high 11.3 points on 48.9 percent shooting. He was also scorching hot from deep thanks to a 44.5 percent three-point rate.
The Lakers traded for Bullock in search of outside shooting help en route to a potential playoff stretch run, but the ex-Piston struggled in purple and gold, scoring 9.3 points and hitting only 34.3 percent of his threes.
Injuries have prevented Bullock from playing a full season: His 63 games played last year stand as a career-high. However, he could be a great addition for New York in a league where teams are shooting more three-pointers than ever.
If he returns to his 2017-18 form, then Bullock should be a key contributor.
