Forward Mindaugas Kuzminskas officially signed with the Knicks on Saturday (on their dumb new regular-sized table) while Steve Mills looked on like a proud papa:

Kuzminskas tweeted out a message to the Knicks and their fans. He'll be busy this summer playing for Lithuania in the Rio Olympics, but he wants the Five Boroughs to know that he's coming:
Thanks for the opportunity @nyknicks!!! pic.twitter.com/RpfwUQmOdh— Mindaugas Kuzminskas (@MKuzminskas) July 9, 2016
Jonas Valanciunas, Raptors center and fellow Lithuanian, tweeted out congratulations to his brother on the national team:
Sveikinimai brolau @mkuzminskas! :)) #NBA pic.twitter.com/pkvrnv2jS2— Jonas Valanciunas (@JValanciunas) July 9, 2016
Enjoy it now, Jonas, cuz our man Mindaugas gonna be out for Raptor blood! Kuzminskas v Valanciunas: Dawn of Atlantic Division Justice.
As for the Knicks still in the United States, the time has come to get back to work! Oh, my bad ... they're already at work.
