The Knicks picked up yet another shooting guard as a depth piece, agreeing to terms with Dwayne Bacon, who was waived by the Orlando Magic on Sunday.

The 6-foot-6 Bacon played in all 72 games (50 starts) last season with Orlando, averaging 10.9 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 25.7 minutes.

He was one of only 11 players in the NBA to play in all 72 regular season games — with RJ Barrett being another.

Originally selected in the second round (40th overall) of the 2017 NBA Draft by New Orleans, Bacon has played in 207 career regular season games with Charlotte and Orlando, averaging 7.3 points. He also played and started in 30 career G League games while with Charlotte and averaged 25.7 points.

It’s another wing on a Knicks roster now loaded with them. The Knicks have 16 players slated for their 15-man roster, including Argentine point guard Luca Vildoza who has a non-guaranteed deal and didn’t too sharp at the Olympics or in the first two summer league games.
