There could be three Plumlees in the NBA next season.
Former Duke big man Marshall Plumlee has agreed to an undrafted free-agent deal with the New York Knicks.
Plumlee, 23, will play for the Knicks in the NBA Summer League. He agreed to a guaranteed free-agent contract with New York shortly after going unselected in the 2016 NBA Draft.

If Plumlee ends up making the Knicks regular season roster, he’ll join brothers Miles—a first-round pick by the Indiana Pacers in 2012 who now plays for the Milwaukee Bucks—and Mason, a first-round pick by the Brooklyn Nets in 2013 who now plays for the Portland Trail Blazers, in the NBA.
The 6-foot-11 center averaged 8.3 points and 8.6 rebounds a game for the Blue Devils in 2015-16.
He is delaying enrollment in the U.S. Army to pursue a professional basketball career.
