The Knicks have officially announced the signings of Julius Randle, Wayne Ellington, Taj Gibson, Elfrid Payton and Bobby Portis on Tuesday.
Randle is expected to start at PF as the big-ticket free agent signing, while Payton will compete for a starting job and Portis should see a hefty dose of backup minutes at the four and five. Ellington had a strong finish with the Pistons and could compete for a starting wing job. Coach David Fizdale was pretty unpredictable with his rotations last year, but we can't imagine Taj Gibson taking too many minutes away from the trio of Portis, Randle and Mitchell Robinson.
