The New York Knicks have agreedto partner with the NBA Development League's Erie BayHawks and will buy the team's basketball operations according to a source with knowledge of the agreement. An official announcement is expected soon.

The Knicks will control the basketball operations of the team including hiring of the coaches as well as handling all player personnel matters while the BayHawks continue to focus on the business side of basketball of the team Erie, Pa. 

The Knicks are third team to enter into this sort of D-League affiliation as the Houston Rockets have partnered with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers for two seasons while the New Jersey Nets entered into a similar agreement with the Springfield Armor this offseason. 

Ridiculous Upside first mentioned rumblings of this agreement on May 5 and then again on Monday while noting the Knicks would ultimately like to eventually move a D-League team to Harlem.
