The Knicks announced Wednesday that they've signed swingman Ronnie Brewer.

Terms of the deal weren't made available, per team policy, but it is believed to be a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum of around $1.07 million.

Brewer, 6-7, holds career averages of 9.0 points, on 50.1 percent shooting over six seasons with Utah, Memphis and Chicago.

He has started 267 out of 418 games in his career and he might add to that total with the Knicks.

New York might pencil Brewer in as its starting shooting guard, which would allow J.R. Smith to come off the bench.

The Bulls declined Brewer's 2012-13 option for $4.37, allowing him to test the free agent market.

The Brewer signing is the latest in a flurry of moves made by Knicks GM Glen Grunwald this summer.

New York has acquired Jason Kidd, Marcus Camby and Raymond Felton. It has re-signed Smith and Steve Novak and declined to bring back Jeremy Lin, who signed a three-year, $25.1 million contract with the Rockets.

They have 14 roster spots and are expected to use their final spot to add a veteran power forward.
