Ron Baker signs partially guaranteed deal with New York Knicks

Former Wichita State guard Ron Baker has signed a one-year, partially guaranteed contract with the New York Knicks, according to Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Baker went undrafted in Thursday night’s NBA Draft.

Baker, a three-time All-MVC player and honorable mention All-American in 2015, averaged 14 points and 3.2 assists last season as Wichita State won its third consecutive MVC title. The Shockers advanced to the Sweet 16 for the third time in Baker’s collegiate career.

The Knicks went 32-50 last season and had zero picks in Thursday’s draft. Looking to rebuild, the team traded for former MVP point guard Derrick Rose and is targeting Oklahoma City star Kevin Durant.
