Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports reported West signed a deal worth $1.4 million.
On July 1, West appeared to have crossed the Knicks off his list of destinations, according to Bob Kravitz of WTHR.com: "West said the rumors about him going to the Knicks are ridiculous; he wants to be with a contender; the Knicks don't qualify."
West also discussed why he won't be returning to the Pacers, per Kravitz:
I'm just not sure the Pacers are in title contention right now. I'm going into my 13th season. I'll be 35 soon. When I got to Indiana, there was hope of getting there and we played at a really high level for a couple of years. But I just don't know if the team is in the position to win right now and I didn't know if I'd have that opportunity to win a title if I'd stayed with the Pacers.
He appeared in 66 contests for the Indiana Pacers this season, but after a disappointing year, he told the team he would be declining his $12.6 million player option for the 2015-16 season, instead hitting free agency.
While West averaged his fewest points per game since his second season in the league, he remains a solid player at power forward and brings grit and experience to the position. For a team that added LaMarcus Aldridge to an already-potent core of talent, West's signing is another statement of intent in the Western Conference.
