Shake Milton plans to sign with Knicks after clearing waivers from Pistons: reports

Shooting guard Shake Milton According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, he plans to join the Knicks after clearing waivers after agreeing to a contract buyout with the Detroit Pistons.

Overall, Milton averaged 4.7 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 42 games with Detroit and Minnesota this season.

Before joining the Timberwolves last offseason, the 6-foot-1, 205-pounder spent five seasons in Philadelphia playing for the 76ers. In 254 games (45 starts), Milton averaged 9.3 points, 2.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists while shooting 37 percent from three and 83 percent from the line.
