Morris, who played locally at Landmark Christian High School, signed as a free agent. The 6-foot-11, 250-pound center averaged 2.6 points in 23 games with the Knicks.
The Hawks hope Morris can team with Al Horford and Zaza Pachulia to provide more bulk in the middle.
"We can certainly use a player like Randolph, whose addition will give us much needed depth at the center position," Hawks coach Mike Woodson said. "We like what we saw of him during our summer league workouts, and we believe he will continue to develop his skills to become a talented player in our league."
