The New York Knicks signed Kentucky center Randolph Morris to a two-year, $1.6 million contract Friday, an NBA source told ESPN Insider Chad Ford.
Morris declared for the 2005 NBA draft as a freshman and went undrafted. The NCAA allowed him to return to school after serving a suspension, but NBA rules prohibit Morris from re-entering the draft, which made him an unrestricted free agent.
Morris averaged 16.1 points and 7.8 rebounds a game this season for the Wildcats.

Thank you, Randolph Morris
Thank you, Randolph Morris, for at least 2.5 years of great basketball. While I am sorry to see you go pro, I wish you the best of luck in your career and expect to pick you up on my fantasy basketball team really soon.
