New York Knickerbockers President Phil Jackson announced today that the team has signed guard Arron Afflalo, center Robin Lopez and forward Derrick Williams and acquired forward/center Kyle O’Quinn via sign-and-trade from Orlando. Terms of the deals are not disclosed. “We are fortunate to add these four new players to our roster that has brought the team both veteran talent and leadership and youth,” Jackson said. “These men, in addition to our rookies from the NBA Draft, will make for a very competitive team this coming year. We are looking forward to the season as we welcome these young men to the New York Knicks 2015-16 roster.”

Willis Reed, the center on the only two championships the Knicks won in their history, likes the move Knicks president Phil Jackson made in reaching agreement with Robin Lopez to play his old position. Lopez, the twin brother of the Nets’ Brook, is known for his defense and that is what wins, said Reed, the Hall of Famer and former Knicks captain. “Let me put it this way,” Reed said. “I know one thing about Mr. Jackson, President Jackson, he knows his defense has got to get a lot better than it was. And I’m sure he’s working on that.”
