According to Yahoo! Sports writer Adrian Wojnarowski, NC State junior forward C.J. Leslie will reportedly sign with New York after going undrafted in the 2013 NBA Draft.

Leslie, a 6-foot-9 forward from Holly Springs, North Carolina, averaged 15.1 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 1.5 assists per game, and he was named a third-team All-ACC selection by the media.

"I pattern myself after guys like Rudy Gay and Paul George," Leslie stated prior to the draft. "Point forwards and combo guards. I don't want to be a 3 full time. I want to play both forward spots and just be a basketball player, wherever I'm needed. That's important to me.

"I'm a good shooter. I just need get more confidence during the game, taking those types of shots. I didn't really shoot much at the college level, so I just want to improve in that area."
