The Knicks signed Ernie Grunfeld, a former first-round draft pick, prior to the 1982-83 season. Grunfeld would spend the rest of his playing career in New York.

Coming off a career year with the Kings, Grunfeld's playing time dipped substantially his first year with New York. He averaged 18.5 minutes, down from 23.4, and 5.4 points -- down from 12.7.

Grunfeld was never one of the Knicks' primary scorers, but by his fourth and final season with the team, he had emerged as a reliable 3-point specialist. In 76 games, Grunfeld shot 26-for-61 from three. His 3-point percentage (42.6) was third in the NBA.

After his playing career, Grunfeld first served as an assistant coach, then as an executive, for the Knicks. He was with New York from 1991-1999, a tenure that included a trip to the NBA Finals.
