The New York Knickerbockers President of Basketball Operations Donnie Walsh announced today that free agent guard Chris Duhon has been signed to a contract. As per club policy, terms of the deal will not be disclosed.
"Chris has established himself as a solid point guard in our league making him a good addition to our roster," Walsh said. "He plays hard on both ends of the floor and makes good decisions with the basketball."
Duhon, 6-1, 185-pounds, has averages of 6.9 points, 4.5 assists and 25.8 minutes in 300 career games (159 starts), all with Chicago. The 25-year-old Slidell, LA-native averaged 5.8 points, 4.0 assists and 22.6 minutes in 66 games with the Bulls last season, and has played in 21 playoff games in three different postseason appearances, averaging 4.7 points and 2.6 assists per playoff game.
"Chris will strengthen our backcourt and help us in several areas," Head Coach Mike D’Antoni said. "He is a smart player who always plays with intensity and I look forward to working with him."
Originally selected by Chicago with the 38th overall pick in the second round of the 2004 NBA Draft, Duhon played in all 82 games as a rookie in 2004-05, making 73 starts and averaging 5.9 points and 4.9 assists per game in helping the Bulls to the playoffs. He averaged career-highs of 8.7 points and 5.0 assists in his sophomore campaign in 2005-06.
Duhon enjoyed a standout career at Duke and left Durham as the only player in ACC history to finish with at least 1,000 points, 800 assists, 475 rebounds, 300 steals and 125 three-point field goals. He led the Blue Devils to a 123-21 record in his four seasons and guided Duke to two Final Four appearances and one national title in 2001. He also led the Blue Devils to three ACC championships and left school as the all-time leader in minutes and steals.
InsideHoops.com says: It's a good signing. Duhon is very unspectacular, but he understands how to pass and set people up, and the Knicks need that. He's considered a great backup; a below-average starter. But he sees the floor better than the current Knicks point guards. So he fills a need.
