The Knicks will reportedly sign former Orlando swingman Mario Hezonja.

New York and the 23-year-old wing agreed to a one-year, $6.5 million contract Sunday, according to a report from ESPN. The Trail Blazers, Kings and Grizzlies were also interested in Hezonja the report says.

Hezonja averaged a career-high 9.6 points and 3.7 rebounds per game for the Magic last season. But, he shot just 33.7 percent from 3-point range.

Hezonja was originally selected by the Magic with the fifth pick in the 2015 NBA Draft. He has struggled with consistency and poor shooting numbers throughout his first three NBA seasons.

Orlando did not pick up Hezonja's fourth-year option, making him an unrestricted free agent this summer.

The Magic selected Texas center Mohamed Bamba with the sixth pick in last month's draft.
