Portis, 24, is a four-year veteran who has played for the Chicago Bulls and Washington Wizards so far in his career. Last season with the Bulls and Wizards, Portis averaged 14.2 points and 8.1 rebounds per game.
The Knicks will likely utilize Portis off the bench, as they have already signed Julius Randle and Taj Gibson in free agency. Portis has solid experience both starting and coming off the bench in his young career.
