Now that the major trades and free agent moves have been made, teams are starting to make smaller transactions to bring in smaller contracts and role players. According to USA Today, the New York Knicks have acquired bruising big man Quicny Acy and swingman Travis Outlaw from the Sacramento Kings.

The New York Knicks will trade guard Wayne Ellington, forward Jeremy Tyler and a 2016 second-round pick to the Sacramento Kings for forwards Quincy Acy and Travis Outlaw, people with knowledge of the situation told USA TODAY Sports.

As part of the deal, the Knicks agreed to remove the protection (picks 31-37) on the 2016 second-round draft pick they sent to Sacramento in 2013.

While the move may not make shockwaves across the league, Phil Jackson is clearly trying to bolster his bench with the acquisition.
