Knicks bring back Nerlens Noel, Alec Burks


The Knicks have a strong commitment to center Nerlens Noel, which means center Mitchell Robinson’s future is unclear.

As the NBA’s free agency opened on Monday, the Knicks are on the path to continuity after making the playoffs 41-31 last season.

They agreed to re-sign Noel to a three-year, $ 32 million contract, leaving Robinson’s future in doubt. The Knicks exercised Robinson’s option for $ 1.8 million for the 2021-22 season.

The Knicks had to use their cap space to re-sign Noel, who skillfully replaced Robinson in his injury-plagued season but did not perform well against Atlanta in the playoffs as he was dominated by Clint Capela.

There is speculation that the Knicks would look to extend Robinson’s contract before he becomes a free agency in 2022. However, with the money going to Noel, Robinson now becomes a big business chip if the Knicks enter into talks. commercials with Portland for Damian Lillard.

Nerlens Noel and Alec Burks will return with the Knicks in 2020-21.

Robinson, who has only played 31 games this season, was seen in a walking boot during a shoot in New Orleans on Monday.

The Knicks have also re-signed winger Alec Burks for three years, $ 30 million and sources say they should re-sign Derrick Rose.

With the Knicks discussing a three-year contract with Evan Fournier, it will likely mark the end of Reggie Bullock’s two-year career with the Knicks. The Knicks also had to use the hood space to ink Burks as some of their higher targets were failing.
