NEW YORK (AP) — The Knicks will give Andrea Bargnani a chance to rediscover his game in New York.

The Atlantic Division champions and Toronto Raptors agreed on a deal involving the former No. 1 overall pick, according to a person with knowledge of the details.

Coming off an injury-shortened season that was his worst since his second year in the league, Bargnani will have a new home on July 10, once next season’s salary cap has been set and deals can become official.

The Knicks will get the forward from Italy in exchange for three players and three picks, the person told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the talks were to remain private.

Toronto will receive Knicks reserves Steve Novak, Marcus Camby and Quentin Richardson, who will be signed-and-traded.

The Knicks are also sending the Raptors a 2016 first-round pick and two second-round picks.
