Knicks has made a great commitment to the center’s Nerlens Noel. In short, the future of Mitchell Robinson at the center is uncertain.
When the NBA’s free agent opened on Monday, Knicks is on a continuing route after playing off with a record of 41-31 in the past season.
They agreed to re-sign Noel a three-year, $ 32 million deal, leaving many questions about Robinson’s future. Knicks exercised Robinson’s option for $ 1.8 million in the 2021-22 season.
Knicks had to re-sign Noel using the cap space. Noel successfully filled Robinson during the injured season, but was less successful than Atlanta in the playoffs because he was dominated by Clint Capela.
There is speculation that Knicks will try to extend Robinson’s contract before becoming a free agent in 2022. But once the money is sent to Noel, Robinson is now an important trade tip if Knicks participates in trade negotiations with Portland for Damian Lillard.
Robinson, who played only 31 games this season, was seen in walking boots while filming in New Orleans on Monday.
Knicks will also re-sign Alec Burks in the wing for $ 30 million for three years and, according to sources, Derrick Rose.
With Knicks talking to Evan Fournier on a three-year contract, that probably marks the end of Reggie Bullock’s two-year Knicks career. Knicks also had to use cap space to ink Burke, as some of their higher goals hadn’t come.
