Knicks sign journeyman big man Solomon Jones
The New York Knicks have signed forward Solomon Jones for the remainder of the season.
New York is dealing with injuries to just about all its big men, including All-Star center Tyson Chandler. Recent addition Kenyon Martin injured his ankle earlier this week.
Jones last played in the NBA during the 2011-12 season, averaging 3.2 points and 2.8 rebounds over 13.9 minutes in 21 games with the L.A. Clippers and New Orleans.
The 6-foot-10, 245-pounder averaged 3.1 points, on 47-percent shooting, and 2.4 rebounds in 268 career games with Atlanta, Indiana, L.A. Clippers and New Orleans.
He played for Liaoning of the Chinese Basketball Association during its 2012-13 season.
He was originally drafted by the Hawks in the second round in 2006 out of South Florida.
