Starkville native Travis Outlaw is bringing his skills back to the East Coast.
The New York Knicks announced on Wednesday that they have acquired Outlaw and fellow forward Quincy Acy from the Sacramento Kings for guard Wayne Ellington and forward Jeremy Tyler.
Also, New York reduced the protection on a 2016 second-round draft pick it sent to Portland in 2012 and the Kings later acquired from the Trail Blazers.
Knicks general manager Steve Mills said the deal helped better balance New York's roster, which was heavier at shooting guard but not deep at small forward behind Carmelo Anthony.
