Knicks Ready To Sign A Backup - Bonner

Anthony Bonner is back in the National Basketball Association. Not that he ever really left.

Bonner, first-round pick of the Sacramento Kings in 1990, agreed to terms with New York Knicks on what one source says is a two-year deal worth $1.5 million.

Bonner, the career leader in scoring (1,972) and rebounding (1,424) at St. Louis University, became a free agent when the Kings declined to make him a qualifying offer after last season. He played in 183 games in three seasons as a foward with the Kings, averaging 8.7 points and 6.1 rebounds per game.

With the Knicks, the 6-foot-8, 225-pound Bonner is expected to back up power forwards Charles Oakley and Anthony Mason and small forward Charles Smith. Bonner is a graduate of Vashon High.
